11th Oct

Despite the seemingly favourable conditions the morning was actually very quiet with just a trickle of birds overhead and small numbers of grounded migrants. Of note overhead were two Wood Larks, four Grey Wagtails, 18 Bramblings, 40 Siskins, 12 Redpolls and 28 Reed Buntings whilst birds on the land included a Short-eared Owl, a Firecrest, 15 Chiffchaffs, three Blackcaps and two Ring Ouzels.
A Great White Egret flew also over the Long Pits but was probably one of the "local" birds regularly seen on the RSPB Reserve.

Three Porpoises were seen offshore.

A Clouded Yellow was also seen.
