Common Buzzard provides highlight

19th February 2010 – bright and frosty N1
It was relatively quiet over the sea early morning (0900-0930) with just small numbers of Common Scoter, Razorbill and Red-throated Diver on the move.
Grounded Migrants
Thrushes were again prominent with 44 Redwing, 28 Fieldfare and 10 Song Thrush logged.
Diurnal Migration
Perhaps a visitor from the mainland rather than a true migrant, a Common Buzzard soared over the observatory late morning before drifting off northeast.
Wildfowl and Waders
A group of 10 Purple Sandpiper were the pick of the waders and 8 Shoveler were seen..
A group of 30 Twite were recorded along with Little Owl and Little Egret.
