Grey Pratincole Cameroon Apr 2018

12 August, 2014

A nice male Redstart at the back of the Black Horse pub this morning, but unfortunately that was as good as it got, with 5 only  Blackcap, 6 Willow Warbler, 2 Chiffchaff, 2 Reed Warbler, 1 Goldcrest,  and 10 Whitethroat. Very quiet offshore with 1w Fulmar, 4 Little Egret, 1 Grey Heron, 2w Whimbrel, 4 Curlew, 30 Med Gull, 4 Swift, and 1 House Martin.

The Long-Tailed Skua still present on the beach west of Church Norton this afternoon.

Yesterday with the expectant winds not materialising the numbers were disappointing with 5w Little Tern, 1w Skua sp at 08-15, 2w Whimbrel, 8 Med Gull, 5w Dunlin, 1w Redshank, 20 Sanderling, 9 Ringed Plover, 3 Little Egret, and small numbers of Common and Sandwich Tern.
