Saturday 2nd November

Attention was turned to the sea following the overnight gale but seabirds disappointed with just 140 Gannet, 58 Kittiwake and a Skua sp through before 11am but other seawall highlights came in the form of the first Goosander of the year circling the bay, five Great Northern Diver, a Merlin and a Fieldfare, with the Scandinavian Rock Pipit still present.

Elsewhere a Black Redstart and a Wheatear were on the Dune Ridge at what remains of John's Watch, the Cetti's Warbler was at the Main Pond, a second Merlin was around the Bight and counts from the estuary included 328 Dark-bellied Brent Geese, 141 Great Black-backed Gull, 56 Bar-tailed Godwit, 22 Shelduck, 10 Greenshank, a Whimbrel and the Slavonian Grebe.
