Monday 8th October

A  calm, quiet autumn day. Little change in birds although the Osprey still lingering on the estuary made a welcome visit to the Recording area. Also in the estuary 370 Wigeon, 363 Teal, six Brent Geese, three Greenshank and the Slavonian Grebe.

Elsewhere two Eider were offshore, a Jay and 14 Chiffchaff and a Blackcap were on site and overhead a Mistle Thrush  was an early migrant with three Grey Wagtail and a few Meadow Pipit also on the move.

Wildlife News: The overcast conditions didn’t flavour insects with just a few Buff-tailed, Carder and a single queen Red-tailed Bumblebee on the remaining Aster flowers.
