28 November, 2009

Nice bright day after the showers but still no goodie offshore with just, 2w Mediterranean Gull, 4w Wigeon, 4w Brent Geese, 2w Red B Merganser, 1w Great C Grebe, and 120+w Sanderling. Also 1 Sparrowhawk, 1 Stonechat, and 1 Treecreeper with the Long T Tit flock.

26 November, 2009

Tried my luck seawatching this afternoon, verey dismal with only 1 adult winter Mediterranean Gull west, 1w Great C Grebe, 1w Red B Merganser and 1 Stonechat in the bushes.
1 Kingfisher around Atherington Pools on Monday 23rd

21 November, 2009


Horrible gloomy day but still worth a quick stroll down the patch, with at least 2-3 Firecrest, 1-2 Treecreeper, and 1 Buzzard.

16 November, 2009

Thought i'd check the sea this afternoon as the wind looked good although from the West was rather disappointed with only 3W Gannets. I was rewarded with 3 Firecrest and 1 Treecreeper at Atherington pools, 1 Rock Pipit on the beach and 24 Brent Geese in the field east of Bread Lane.

12 November, 2009

Another miserable return down the patch today, tried my luck offshore and the highlight being 5W Diver Spa, probably Red Throated, 1W Great C Grebe, and several Brent Geese moving to and thru. 1E Bar T Godwit and several Curlew in fields adjacent to Baliffscourt.

4 Firecrest in the area today, 2 at the mill and 2 at Baliffscourt, and 32 Curlew in the field south of the mill before the rain arrived.

Quick walk around the golf course this morning, have to say very quiet with only 1 Black Redstart flying from west beach car park over the river mouth. 1 Buzzard and a couple of Redpoll moving, also a few Sanderling.

04 November, 2009

About the same as yesterday with highlights being, 2 Firecrest, 1 brief Wheatear, 1 Chiffchaff, 1 Peregrine over the mill, 1 Rock Pipit, 10 Siskin, 2 Stonechat, 2 Mediterranean Gull, 11 Curlew and 600+ Wood Piegeon.

03 November, 2009

Out before the rain appeared, there were still at least 2 Firecrests, at Atherington, also 2 Brambling. 1 Chiffcahff, longwood and  4 flyover Redpoll. Best of the rest was 11 Curlew, 2 Brent Geese, 2 Mediterranean Gull, 1 Sparrowhawk, 1 Little Egret and a few Sanderling on tideline.
