Tuesday 18th October

The first Goosander of the year flew south off the seawall early morning along with a single Merlin, 40 Gannet and a dozen mixed Guillemot and Razorbill, also offshore a Black-necked Grebe, a Red-throated Diver in full summer plumage and 43 Common Scoter with 1815 Herring Gull at low tide. Elsewhere the Slavonian Grebe was in the estuary with 67 Knot, 61 Grey Plover, 12 Sanderling, three adult Mediterranean Gull and a Sandwich Tern. New migrants were limited to a single Wheatear in Greenland Lake with 130+ Goldfinch, six Swallow and three Redpoll overhead.
