Wednesday 11th October 2017

A very breezy day with largely south westerly winds resulting in unsurprisingly little in the way of migration with three Grey Wagtails, four Rock Pipits, two Bramblings and a Siskin the only passerines of note. A Short-eared Owl was on Redwell Marsh early morning along with an impressive count of 74 Black-tailed Godwits. Three Red-throated Divers were noted on the sea.
