Tuesday 11th September

Seawatching early morning saw 63 Common Scoter offshore with 62 Gannet, 10 Kittiwake, two Fulmar and two Manx Shearwater south. The windier weather though may have brought the second winter Little Gull in the estuary late evening, the second of the year. Elsewhere a Wryneck was reported but with no further details, a Yellow Wagtail was on the Golf Course and counts from the estuary included 230 Redshank, 51 Ringed Plover, 42 Dunlin, seven Black and three Bar-tailed Godwit, four Grey Plover, four Whimbrel, two Greenshank and the Slavonian Grebe.

Wildlife News: The mild weather resulted in a good cricket chorus this evening, with Great Green, Grey and Dark Bush-cricket all in good voice.
