Sunday 23rd October

A Merlin heading across the bay towards Orcombe Point mid morning was the highlight as the strong easterly wind removed any chance of vismig with just 17 Goldfinch and four Chaffinch overhead. Counts from the estuary included 1827 Wigeon, 392 Curlew, 363 Teal, 96 Brent Geese, 45 Dunlin, 21 Common Gull, a noticeable increase, 16 Shelduck, two Mediterranean Gull and the Slavonian Grebe. Elsewhere the Eider was off the seawall, a Buzzard was in the Entrance bushes with just three Chiffchaff and a Blackcap.
