29th October

A beautiful 'spring' like day, with no wind and plenty of sunshine. The calm seas finally allowed us to add Common Scoter to the year list with a bird off the links, where there were also 20 Long-tailed Ducks offshore. There were no stand out highlights, but passerines worth mentioning included a Grey Wagtail at Hooking, 2 Wheatears (Beacon, Hooking), 58 Meadow and 30 Rock Pipits, 718 Redwings, 190 Twite (which included 134 south in 3 hours), 2 Greenfinches and a new Yellowhammer at Neven.
