Another quiet week bird-wise (but busy work-wise) with very little time out in the field. Bird of the week was a Black-necked Grebe off the seafront late after work on Tuesday. It was presumably the bird that has been reported for some time off the Warren. It was accompanying 2 Great Crested Grebes and 3 Wigeon.
Today there's little else to report though the long-staying Scaup has been off Mudbank all day. Also off there a single Teal and c40+ Pintail.
A quick look off Maer Rocks first thing this morning produced just 4 Purple Sandpipers and 28 Dark-bellied Bent Geese.
Bullfinches seem to be popping up everywhere at the moment. Long may it last!
