Sunday 27th October
The SW winds continue to produce little offshore and generally hamper birding on site, despite this the day did produce a surprise, if underwhelming, year tick in the form a Red-legged Partridge on the Golf Course. Records from the estuary included a late Whimbrel, c2400 Oystercatcher, 236 Redshank, 151 Brent Geese (21 juveniles), 41 Ringed Plover, three Black-tailed Godwit, two Greenshank and an adult Mediterranean Gull. Elsewhere two Redpoll and single Mistle Thrush and Siskin flew over and just four Goldcrest and two Chiffchaff were on site.
