6th Nov

More of the same with a handful of grounded migrants and a trickle of birds overhead including a Grey Heron, six late Swallows, 25 Blackbirds, three Fieldfares, seven Bramblings and 15 Siskins.

Seawatching was also slow going but did produce a surprising record when an adult Sabine's Gull was found in the late afternoon.

Two Porpoises were seen.

Elsewhere, at least 16 Cattle Egrets came in to roost at ARC this evening.
