Run of the mill sightings

11th September 2012 – sunny spells WNW4/5
Observations over the falling tide (0900-1000) produced 50 Gannet and small numbers of Red-throated Diver, Fulmar, Common Scoter, Kittiwake, Sandwich Tern, Guillemot and Razorbill.
Grounded Migrants
Again few migrants were in evidence with just 4 Wheatear and single Chiffchaff and Goldcrest logged.
Wildfowl and Waders
Wildfowl numbers continue to remain low and waders included 100 Golden Plover.
A Canary-shouldered Thorn was the highlight in a poor moth catch.
