Grey Again

Kittiwake - Mudbank. A very irregular species off here.

Dismal weather today after yesterday's sunshine. Orcombe Point - 2 Red-throated Divers, 1 Great Northern Diver, 14+ Common Scoters, 1 female Eider, 1 Turnstone, 1 Chiffchaff, 1 or 2 Cirl Buntings, 1+ Snipe, c35 Skylarks, 1 Rock Pipit and 42+ Pied Wagtails. A female Black Redstart was in the Shelly Beach area and Mudbank counts included 1 Kittiwake, the female-type Common Scoter, 13+ Great Crested Grebes, c70 Redshank and at least 10, possibly 12 Red-breasted Mergansers, which is a bit of a relief after yesterday's negative post.

Kingfisher - Mudbank.

Female-type Black Red in the drizzle. No sign of the adult male but it's presumably still in the area.
