Sunday 10th November

The Bonaparte's Gull was again present ranging along the beach through the morning, calling and showing very well at times. The main interest though was overhead with the ideal conditions producing 5950 Wood Pigeon and 59 Stock Dove heading W before 10.30, also moving through 87 Rook, 49 Skylark, 46 Lesser Black-backed Gull, 35+ Linnet, 30+ Goldfinch, five Jackdaw, five Siskin, three Redpoll, a Bullfinch, a Fieldfare and a late Swallow. Elsewhere the first Scaup of the year, an immature, was offshore with two Great Northern and a Red-throated Diver, a female Long-tailed Duck was also a new arrival in the estuary where the Black Brant and Slavonian Grebe remain, four Cirl Bunting were on site and a Kingfisher was again at the Main Pond.
