A low tide visit saw 247 Dark and 44 Pale-bellied Brent Goose feeding on the mudflats, with three Common Scoter, four Great Northern and Red-throated Diver offshore in millpond conditions and a Firecrest and four Chiffchaff in the Entrances Bushes.
Other Wildlife: A warm, sunny afternoon was productive for late autumn insects, possibly the last records of the year for some. Heading the list were six Common Darter basking in the sunshine.
Potential migrants were four Marmalade Hoverfly and a Silver Y that flew in over the seawall. On the Hebe were several Common Dronefly and Buff-tailed Bumblebee, with Honey Bee and Common Wasp on Gorse.
Other active invertebrates included the leaf beetle Chrysolina banksii and a couple of Invisible Spider Drapetisca socialis.
The Grey Squirrel was in trees by the First Pond.
