15th Oct

A breezy day with heavy rain from late afternoon. Notable birds included two Tundra Bean Goose which circled over the Point, a separate flock of ten White-fronted Geese over the Point, a flock of 55 Pintails flying down-channel and a late Greenshank which flew south-east. A group of three Short-eared Owls were found in the Desert and six Ring Ouzels were seen in the bushes.
Late in the day a Polish-ringed first-winter Caspian Gull was found on the beach at the fishing boats.

A Brown Hare was also seen.
