Friday 3rd November

The three Spoonbill remain, roosting on Finger Point at high tide and feeding in Shutterton Creek during low water, also in the estuary, counts included 827 Wigeon, 700 Dunlin, 252 Dark and 27 Pale-bellied Brent Geese, 41 Shelduck, 25 Grey and six Ringed Plover, just 18 Teal, seven Greenshank, two Sanderling, two Knot and the Whimbrel. A juvenile Common Tern was a new arrival and the latest since a long-stayer that remained until 3rd Dec 2006.

Overhead 2260 Woodpigeon flew WSW during gaps in showers with 56 Jackdaw, 44 Lesser Black-backed Gull, nine Stock Dove and seven Rook also passing through. Three Lesser Redpoll and a Bullfinch were the pick of the few passerines.

Elsewhere the Dartford Warbler remains on the Golf Course, five Chiffchaff and four Goldcrest were on site with a drake Eider and a Great Northern Diver off Warren Point.

Other Wildlife: A late Southern Hawker was still on the wing at the Main Pond, seven Red Admiral flew through and a Speckled Wood was in the Entrance Bushes.
