Ongoing Excavation Works.

23rd Nov

It was very quiet offshore except for five Mediterranean Gulls, an adult Caspian Gull at the Patch and another late Sandwich Tern of note.

There was another little scatter of migrants on the land with a Woodcock in the trapping area, a Grey Wagtail at the Sewage Works, seven Firecrests across the area and a handful of finches on the move including two Crossbills, a Bullfinch and two Brambling. A Little Owl was calling near the Observatory this evening.
