Wednesday 3rd November

The return of the Spotted Redshank was the highlight on the late afternoon high tide, feeding with 182 Redshank, 139 Turnstone and 18 Greenshank, the last two both high counts from the Warren. Also in the estuary the first returning Lapwing, 553 Wigeon, 257 Teal, 218 Dark-bellied Brent Geese, 53 Bar-tailed Godwit, 36 Ringed and 32 Grey Plover, six Knot, four Pintail and a Red-breasted Merganser

Elsewhere an adult Mediterranean Gull was offshore, a Grey Wagtail and two presumed Scandinavian Rock Pipit were in the saltmarsh; and a small roost of 50 Starling and a Kingfisher were at the Main Pond. 

Wildlife News: A Vagrant Emperor was perched up on the Dune Ridge above Groyne 10. The first record for exactly two years, with one on 3rd November 2019.
