More autumnal gales

7th September 2011 – heavy showers W5/6/7
Despite the continued strong westerly wind or perhaps because of it – south westerlies are the favoured direction, morning observations (0830-1000) were disappointing with just 26 Common Scoter, 11 Sandwich Tern, 10 Fulmar, 6 Gannet, 5 Kittiwake, 4 Razorbill and a Manx Shearwater logged.
Grounded Migrants
Single Chiffchaff and Goldcrest were logged.
Wildfowl and Waders
Single Little Stint and Curlew Sandpiper continue to linger.
At least 4 Little Egret sheltered along the eastern shore.
