Small Migrant Numbers

An Orcombe dawn raid before football. A very small number of migrants, on a cold easterly, comprised 1+ stonechat, 2 wheatear, 1 chiffchaff and 2 goldcrest. Additionally 10+ robins probably included a few moving birds. Maer Rocks produced  236 dark-bellied brent geese, 1 dunlin, 20+ turnstone, 7+ purple sandpiper and a great crested grebe.
Late yesterday evening, on Maer Rocks, there were 10+ turnstone, 1 purple sandpiper, 2 great crested grebe, 1 female long-tailed duck, c10+ common scoter, 1 redshank and 38+ brent geese.
