Wednesday 20th November

The Warren's sixth Caspian Gull, a first winter, was on Finger Point with an influx of 77 Great Black-backed Gull early afternoon before being flushed. Also in the estuary 348 Dark-bellied Brent Geese, 145 Teal, 96 Knot, 89 Grey and 26 Ringed Plover, 15 Sanderling, 12 Red-breasted Merganser, a Golden Plover and the Slavonian Grebe. Very low numbers of Curlew, Wigeon and Bar-tailed Godwit were present due to constant illegal disturbance from a kite-surfer in Shutterton Creek.

The strong SE wind saw 300+ Kittiwake and auk sp head south offshore early morning with the first Fulmar for several months, 213 Gannet, 13 Great Northern and six Red-throated Diver. Elsewhere three Goldcrest and a Chiffchaff were on site and the Shoveler remains on the Main Pond.
