Wednesday 8th November

The Black Brant was again in the Bight with 290 Dark-bellied and two Pale-bellied Brent Geese, also in the estuary 530 Dunlin, 270 Redshank, a Great Northern Diver and the Slavonian Grebe. A Jack Snipe at the Main Pond was presumably a returning bird, also there six Reed Bunting, two Snipe, the Cetti's Warbler and a Shoveler.

Elsewhere 22 Long-tailed and a Coal Tit were in the bushes and a Red-throated Diver was offshore, but the clear skies meant any movement overhead largely escaped detection but single Brambling and Redpoll flew low enough to make the list, unlike further west there was no pigeon movement today.

Jack Snipe (& two Snipe) It did show better than this at times! - Lee Collins
