Wednesday 9th November 2016

After 5 days of no moths at all in the traps, this migrant Pearly Underwing was a pleasant surprise.

A day of non stop rain, so staring out to sea was the order of the day, with mostly ducks on the menu including, 102 Common Scoter, 78 Teal, 23 Wigeon, 7 Shoveler, 4 Tufted Duck, 3 each of Pintail, Shelduck, Goldeneye and Gadwall all south along with 3 Red-throated Diver, 1 Little Auk, 1 Red-breasted Merganser, 4 Lapwing, 58 Dunlin and ones and twos of other common Waders, plus 1 Long-tailed Duck that went north early on.

1 Blackbird was the only bird ringed.
