Sunday 19th November

A Black Redstart, a male and the first of the year, moved along the Dune Ridge past John's Watch but failed to linger. Other new arrivals were in the estuary with an increase to 1110 Dunlin over high tide along with 575 Wigeon, 378 Teal, 196 Dark and 20 Pale-bellied Brent Geese, 140 Redshank, 136 Black and 74 Bar-tailed Godwit, 95 Grey Plover, 53 Turnstone, 17 Sanderling and four Greenshank.

Elsewhere the Bonaparte's Gull was around Langstone Rock early afternoon, three Red-throated and a Great Northern Diver were offshore and the pair of Shoveler remain on the Main Pond.

Ringing News: A Sandwich Tern seen here in four of the last five autumns was recently re-sighted in South Africa.

Wildlife News: In the sunny weather a queen Buff-tailed Bumblebee was still on the wing.
