Kestrel in from way out out over the sea…..

A busy morning at the Gap, with 280 Siskins, 120 Goldfinches, 100 Linnets, 110 Tree Sparrows, eight Swallows and three House Martins among vismig there, with a Brown Argus in a garden there in the aftertnoon. A group of 13 Red-breasted Mergansers headed south at the Brigg, where a juvenile Common Tern and a Sandwich Tern were in residence; a Kestrel came in off the sea in afternoon, with a single Arctic Skua offshore. The Dams continued to host two Greenshank and the mixed Shelduck pair.
