Friday 7th November

Seawatching early morning was initially disappointing with many of the passing birds almost out to the horizon, fortunately the best bird was close in off the seawall, a Little Auk that flew south just after 07.30. It or another flew north along the beach 40 minutes later, briefly landing on the sea off groyne 10 before heading over the spit into the estuary. Also passing offshore a Merlin, a Black-throated, eight Great Northern and four Red-throated Diver, 170 Gannet, 35+ Common Gull and just 12 Kittiwake. Elsewhere a Grey Phalarope was feeding distantly off Warren Point, where a late Wheatear remained on the beach.
