Ongoing Excavation Works.

13th Oct

Strong easterly winds limited sea passage and made finding birds in the bushes very difficult. Four Ring Ouzels were the best of the few grounded migrants that were present whilst four White-fronted Geese, 320 Fieldfares and 25 Siskins flew over. Around 25 Mediterranean Gulls and a juvenile Arctic Tern were offshore.

Five Porpoises and a Grey Seal were seen offshore.
