6th October 2018

Bird of the day was undoubtedly the Hawfinch in Long Lane frst thing, a less than annual visitor to the recording area. Otherwise 20 Redwings and five Fieldfares were in the Country Park area, with activities on the sea picking up late morning and including a Velvet Scoter, 350 Common Scoters, two Pintails, five Arctic Skuas, two Goldeneye, the juvenile Common Tern still, five Sandwich Terns, and the Kingfisher still on the Brigg. A single Brambling was on Carr Naze.

Yesterday (5th) was quiet, with a Bonxie north and six Red-breasted Mergansers in the bay.
