Monday 10th November
The Bonaparte's Gull was present again today this time with Black-headed Gull in the estuary mid morning. Also in the estuary 1020+ Dunlin, 507+ Wigeon, 54 Grey and 32 Ringed Plover, seven Red-breasted Merganser and the Slavonian Grebe. Another pulse of vismig saw 1940 Wood Pigeon, 19 Stock Dove and eight Jackdaw head west with small numbers of Chaffinch and three Bullfinch also overhead. Elsewhere the three Velvet Scoter were offshore with single Great Northern and Red-throated Diver, the Water Pipit was in front of the hide and four Chiffchaff were around the Main Pond but there was no sign of the Yellow-browed. Late news for yesterday includes the first Black Redstart of the year reported on the seawall.
