Kestrel and Firecrest(s)

Kestrel - Orcombe Point - a very confiding bird. A young male I think.
At least one Firecrest on Orcombe Point first thing this morning. Otherwise migrants were again very thin on the ground with just 2 Chiffchaff, c25+ Meadow Pipit and 1 Goldcrest. The Kestrel showed brilliantly.
Off Mudbank - 6 Goldeneye, 12 Red-breasted Merganser and an adult Mediterranean Gull.
This afternoon the Eider and a Sandwich Tern were off Shelly Beach, and yesterday the Eider was off there along with the Long-tailed Duck. A pair of Shoveler were off the Grove late afternoon.

Eider off Shelly Beach this afternoon.
