Friday 29th October

An afternoon visit on the dropping tide saw over 3000 birds spread across the mudflats, the majority being 1543 Wigeon but with 371 Black-tailed Godwit still favouring this end of the estuary and a count of 415 Dunlin showing new birds are arriving to overwinter each day. Also present 168 Dark-bellied Brent Geese, still no juveniles, 20 Shelduck, four Red-breasted Merganser, three Sanderling, two Knot and a Kingfisher

Elsewhere a Sandwich Tern was offshore with 40+ Goldfinch in Greenland Lake and four Chiffchaff in the bushes.

Wildlife News: A Grey Seal was hauled out on the Wreck and the calm, at times sunny, conditions saw Red Admiral and Speckled Wood on the wing along with just a single Ivy Bee
