Saturday 6th October

The morning rain and northerly winds didn't appear to drop anything on site with the exception of a large feeding flock of 430 Gannet close in off John's Watch mid morning. Also offshore the two Black-throated Diver, two Great Northern Diver, one in full summer plumage, 17 Common Scoter, the two Eider and three Dark-bellied Brent Geese.

No sign of the Red-crested Pochard with just 342 Wigeon in Shutterton Creek, also in the estuary 45 Dunlin, 30 Knot, 20 Turnstone, three Greenshank, six Sandwich Tern, a first winter Yellow-legged Gull and the Slavonian Grebe. Elsewhere two Swallow flew through and at least 14 released Pheasant are now on site.
