Saturday 5th November

The fourth Yellow-browed Warbler of the autumn was around the Entrance Bushes but most other new arrivals just passed through including at least five Coal Tit and a Fieldfare that paused briefly in the Cuckoo's Nest. Overhead the usual mix of species but in lower than expected numbers with 2585 Wood Pigeon, 76 Chaffinch, 17 Skylark, 11 Siskin, five Stock Dove, four Mistle Thrush and single Brambling, Redpoll and Shoveler.

Elsewhere the Bonaparte's Gull was on the 1st groyne late morning before heading to Warren Point, 1210 Dunlin were in the estuary with 21 Bar and eight Black-tailed Godwit, 13 Greenshank, seven Sanderling and four Red-breasted Merganser; and 125+ Common Scoter and two Eider were offshore.
