Wednesday 2nd December 2015

At least 767 Cormorants headed out to sea this morning which breaks the record - again ! Offshore hard work but worth a mention were south bound 17 Golden Plover, 8 Brent, 4 Common Scoter, Great-northern Diver, Red-breasted Merg & Curlew plus 11 Gannet following a ship in. Still some visible migration with 54 Siskin, 29 Goldfinch, 3 Linnet, Brambling & Little Egret heading south. On the reserve just the stuff that intends wintering here plus a brief appearance by a Snow Bunting. In the moth traps the odd migrant, like Dark Sword Grass, still showing up.

Ringing: 2 goldfinch
