17th Nov

A decent enough start to the day but rapidly turning very wet and windy from mid-morning. A Little Grebe, two Gadwall, a Water Rail, a Kingfisher and two Chiffchaffs were of note at the Long Pits whilst a Fieldfare, a Brambling, 62 Goldfinches, six Siskins and three Redpolls flew over.
The sea was very quiet although a Sooty Shearwater was seen in the early afternoon.

Two Grey Seals were seen.

The Ring-necked Duck and Cattle Egret were still place and six Caspian Gulls were seen on Burrowes in the afternoon.
