Sunday 11th December 2016


2 Snow Bunting flew south along the beach just offshore early on and may be out there somewhere. Also on the move southbound 2 Mipits & a Rock Pipit. A couple of new Songies of the British race T.p.clarkei were a bit unexpected as there is no cold weather to force them down the coast from inland at present. This Bullfinch is still with us which would make it the longest stay for one of it's kind this century ! 555 Cormorants headed out to sea fishing and whilst watching gulls behind shipping 4 Shelduck went south plus a Gannet north.

3 birds ringed: 2 Song Thrush, 1 Chaffinch
