Saturday 9th November

The highlight was a Slavonian Grebe briefly offshore, the first new arrival for this formally regular species since March 2017; the flightless resident bird remained in the estuary.  Counts from the estuary included 972 Oystercatcher, 530 Dark-bellied and three Pale-bellied Brent Geese, 400+ Dunlin, 310 Wigeon, 154 Teal, 40 Bar-tailed Godwit, 16 Shelduck, five Red-breasted Merganser and a Greenshank.

Elsewhere the Cetti's Warbler was still at the Main Pond, the Scandinavian Rock Pipit was at the seawall, six Goldcrest and two Chiffchaff were on site and also offshore two Red-throated Diver and eight Great-crested Grebe.
