Saturday 29th October

The Bonaparte's Gull made one of it's increasingly erratic appearances, sat on the 2nd groyne early morning before heading out in to the bay, also offshore three Great Northern and a Red-throated Diver, 76 Common Scoter and the two Eider. Records from the estuary included a Purple Sandpiper on Finger Point, a Curlew Sandpiper with 415 Dunlin, the latest record since 2000; 328 Brent Geese, 70 Grey Plover and the Slavonian Grebe.

Overhead it was relatively quiet until 11am when an hour of passage saw the first Brambling if the year head NE with 278 Chaffinch and four Siskin. Elsewhere two Dartford Warbler were in Greenland Lake, a Snipe was on Warren Point and eight Stonechat, five Chiffchaff and two Blackcap were on site.
