Saturday 16th November

The adult Bonaparte's Gull was again off the beach during the morning at least with 22 Great-crested Grebe, four Great Northern and three Red-throated Diver offshore. Records from the estuary included c950 Dunlin, a big increase; 800+ Wigeon, 369 Brent Geese, 154+ Teal, 28 Bar and three Black-tailed Godwit, nine Lapwing, six Knot, four Greenshank, three Pintail and the Slavonian Grebe. Elsewhere a Firecrest was on Langstone Rock, a pair of Cirl Bunting were on Warren Point and overhead there were 85 Wood Pigeon, 63 Redwing, 46 Chaffinch, the highest count this autumn; 12 Siskin, three Redpoll, a Brambling and a Stock Dove that evaded a Peregrine attack by dropping into Sycamores on Warren Point.
