Dawn Pink-feet

7th October 2021 – overcast/rain clearing to showers SSE3/4
A scan of the sea revealed 23 Common Scoter and 2 Shag.
Grounded Migrants
Limited to 4 Wheatear, 3 Goldcrest and a Chiffchaff – it has been a very poor autumn so far for Goldcrest.
Diurnal Migration
Numerous skeins of Pink-footed Geese totalling 3300 birds flew into Morecambe Bay at dawn.
A Merlin was the best of the rest.
