22nd November


A reminder that there's an In Focus field event at the Obs between 10am and 4pm this Saturday, 24th November.

 A very quiet day compared to the past week with just a handful of Redwings, Song Thrushes, Siskins, Chaffinches and Blackcaps on the passerine front. The non-passerines provided some light relief with a Merlin past the Bill, a Woodcock in Culverwell, three Purple Sandpipers on the rocks and a fly-over Golden Plover. The sea was quieter than usual with just a small selection consisting of 9 Common Scoter, a flock of 25 Mediterranean Gulls, 4 Common Gulls and topped with a strong passage of Auks with approximately 1000/hour. 

Ferrybridge saw little change from yesterday with 1175 Dark-bellied and 5 Pale-bellied Brents, the usual Black Brant and a Grey Plover
