Sunday 20th January 2016


Collared Doves are due to hatch about now - she's done well to keep sitting on them considering the winds & rain recently. Perseverance staring offshore produced southbound 500 Golden Plover, 53 Brent, 31 Kitts, 22 Red-throated Diver, 19 Guillemot, 12 Common Gull, 11 Shelduck, 4 Bonxie, 3 Gannet, 3 Little Gull, 2 Great-crested Grebe, Pintail & Dunlin plus northbound 63 Brent & 35 Red-throats with a Razorbill flying south and pitching in offshore mid-day. The Guillemot count is the highest count for some while. In the bushes Chiffchaff & at least one Goldcrest are still with us.

Ringing: 1 greenfinch, 1 house sparrow
