Too few birders on site today to cover all areas and the high tide period was missed, instead 610 Herring Gull and 135 Black-headed Gull, as well as lots of Brent Goose, Wigeon and waders were seen foraging at low tide on the mudflats, along creeks and offshore sandbars, where also a Carrion Crow was observed to repeatedly forage for mussels, commute with prey to Warren Point and cache each item by digging holes in the sand and covering over, or covering the item with a pile of seaweed.
Eider (Alan Keatley)
Offshore was uneventful with seven Common Scoter, three Eider, including an adult male, and a diver sp. The Scandinavian Rock Pipit was again present around the rocks, Go-Kart and promenade area. Details are that is was ringed on 6th March 2019 on Giske, Møre & Romsdal, Norway, 1,440 km NNE; yesterday was its first recovery.
