Monday 25 September 2023

The wind calmed only slightly today but clear sunny skies certainly improved the weather. The highlights of the day were eight Pink-footed Geese were seen flying high north-east off the North End and three Curlew Sandpipers which flew south along the West Coast. A mid-morning push of seabirds of the West Coast saw two Balearic Shearwaters, a Little Tern, 36 Sandwich Terns, 34 Common Terns, and 37 Arctic Terns go south; with a Little Gull off the South End. 

Other birds of note were 173 Gannets, seven Manx Shearwaters, three Purple Sandpipers, a Grey Wagtail, a Song Thrush, two Wheatears, five Blackcaps, four Chiffchaffs, a Willow Warbler, 37 Goldcrests and five Goldfinches
