African Skimmer Cameroon Apr 2018

09 November, 2011

First bird up was a late Sandwich Tern just offshore, but it soon drifted away and there was little sea movement thereafter. The Hoopoe showed well, as did the Snow Bunting in the same location as yesterday (W end of dunes). 'Vis mig' was poor with about 200 Goldfinches and 20 Siskins passing overhead but little else. The tit flock was eventually located but today seemed to consist of just 20 Long-tailed Tits, with a few Blue and Great Tits thrown in and 2 Goldcrests, the Short-eared Owl was also seen.
