Sunday 25th October

Vismig early morning didn't really get going with a lack of cloud but at least 15 Redpoll, three Bullfinch, three Great-spotted Woodpecker, two Siskin and a Brambling flew over. In the estuary the Bonaparte's Gull was in the Railway Saltmarsh before relocating to Groyne 4, whilst counts included 800+ Teal, 260 Dark-bellied and a Pale-bellied Brent, 27 Grey Plover, four Greenshank and a Pintail. Elsewhere the overdue first Tufted Duck of the year, two drakes, were off the seawall early afternoon with a single Red-throated Diver, a late Wheatear was along the beach and a Dartford Warbler was on the Point with two Cirl Bunting.

Wildlife News: A fresh Meadow Brown was the highlight, the third recent record of a second generation on the Warren. Also on the wing Common Darter, Emperor dragonfly, Red Admiral and Speckled Wood.
