Bits and pieces

20th September 2008 - bright and sunny S1
A return to the customary early morning observations (0800-0900) produced 500 Common Scoter, 80 Gannet, 16 Razorbill, 4 Red-throated Diver, 3 Scaup and a Guillemot.
Diurnal Migration
Although a Yellow Wagtail was logged other sightings proved rather disappointing with just 100 Meadow Pipit, 20 Swallow, 15 alba Wagtail and a Grey Wagtail.
Grounded Migrants
Variety rather than quantity was led by 2 Great Spotted Woodpecker and 2 Pied Flycatcher along with 7 Goldcrest, 3 Whinchat, 2 Blackcap, 2 Whitethroat and a Willow Warbler.
