African Skimmer Cameroon Apr 2018

25 March, 2010

Sea very slow this morning with only a couple of Fulmars heading west and 6 Brent Geese sitting on the sea, also  several of both Red B Mergansers and Great C Grebe. But the highlight of the morning being a flock of 8 Garganey and 2 Teal being spooked by a Peregrine, they briefly settled on the sea before moving off east. Supporting cast included 25 Sanderling, 1 Little Egret, 1 Curlew, 3 Chiffchaff, 1 Firecrest, 1 Mediterranean Gull, 1 Grey Partridge and 1 Reed Bunting.
