Saturday 3rd October
A change in the weather, with heavy rain and a strong SW wind forecasted! However the reality was just a moderate W wind with little rain, The sheltered spots held plenty of Chiffchaffs and a few Blackcaps, whilst a Peregrine was hunting high over the fields. A couple of hours sea-watching produced 24 Dark-bellied Brent Geese W (my first of the autumn), 5 Great Crested Grebes, 3 Med Gulls, 12 Gannets, 2 Common Scoter, 2 Shelduck, 2 Common Terns, 1 Sandwich Tern and 70 Oystercatchers.
