Sunday 22nd October 2017

Another frustrating day as storm Brian passed through giving strong westerly winds. On the sea 900 Common Scoter were counted and on the grazing marshes 100 Black-tailed Godwits, 2 Snipe and 40 Ruff were present. A male Stonechat was near Thornham Harbour and 2 Rock Pipits were over the saltmarsh together with a flock of 75 Linnets.
