Sunday 2nd November

Seawatching first thing saw a site record passage of Gannet heading south with 1106 in little over an hour from first light, with them were 152 Kittiwake, an adult Little Gull, three Great Northern and two Red-throated Diver. Also heading south 13 Pomarine and two Arctic Skua with four unidentified skua, however the biggest one that got away was a probable adult male Red-footed Falcon that flew south close off the seawall just before 9am. In the estuary counts included 271 Brent Geese, 170 Great Black-backed Gull, 116 Black-tailed Godwit, 109 Teal, 34 Ringed Plover, 18 Sanderling, 17 Red-breasted Merganser, four Knot, two Sandwich Tern and the Slavonian Grebe. Elsewhere a Woodlark was on the Golf Course, the Water Pipit was in front of the hide, a Wheatear was on Warren Point and overhead limited movement included 15 Skylark, three Snipe, a Swallow and high east, an adult Mute Swan.
