Today's Stuff

 At least 45 Shelduck still off Mudbank this morning.
Orcombe Point was quiet again but an overflying Yellowhammer was an unusual record. This morning's Firecrest was presumably the same as yesterday's. Otherwise 3 Chiffchaff, 1 Goldcrest and a Siskin were the most notable sightings.
Maer Rocks produced 30 Dark-bellied Brent Geese, 6 Sandwich Terns, 8+ Purple Sandpipers, 5 Turnstones and an adult Mediterranean Gull.
Mudbank was fairly productive today with 46 Dark-bellied Brent Geese, 4 Pale-bellied Brent Geese, c10+ Pintail, c30/40+ Wigeon, 1 Eider, 1 Long-tailed Duck, 4+ Goldeneye, 1 Black-tailed Godwit, c120 Curlew, 45 Shelduck, 5 Redshank and a Grey Plover.

Masses of flies attracting 5 Rock Pipits to the dung heap.
