Sunday 7th December 2014

A piebald adult male Blackbird was obviously new in as not seen one round the observatory for a long time. A new British race Songie also new on site has probably moved down to the coast as winter sets in. Looking out to sea for any movements extremely tedious with just 4 Teal, 3 Shelduck, Red-throated Diver & Snipe moving south in over an hours observation although on the plus side the Kittiwake count behind shipping has just squeezed into double figures and a Pom Skua put in an appearance. After no moths in the traps for the last six nights and an upcoming chilly week forecast they have been packed away for the winter.

Ringing: 2 Wood Pigeon, 1 Song Thrush, 1 House Sparrow
