Another Leach’s Petrel

10th October 2011 – overcast/rain WSW5/6/7
Early mornimg (0900-1100) produced a single Leach’s Petrel moving out of Morecambe Bay along with 22 Common Scoter, 6 Razorbill and single Gannet and Red-throated Diver.
Grounded Migrants
The miserable conditions allowed for little evidence of newly grounded birds, however, a single Wheatear was logged.
Diurnal Migration
A rather impetuous Swallow was seen.
Little Egrets and Merlin continue to show.
An Angle Shades was the only attraction to the moth trap.
