Sunday 6th November 2016

In recent years it has been very mild at this time of the year whereas this year it feels more like mid-winter. Offshore not a lot but worth a mention are southbound 3 Gannet, 2 Lapwing, Long-tailed Duck, Little Egret, Grey Heron plus northbound Guillemot & Purple Sand (although the Purp may just be moving from the point to one of the groynes along the prom). 4 Swallow south need to get a move on if they are to make Africa as in these cold conditions feeding opportunities for them will be limited. Migrants in the bushes and on the reserve were almost non-existent with one Skylark the highlight !

Moth traps have been "mothless" for the last three nights and no birds were ringed.
