7th November

A distinct bite to the wind brought a seasonable chill to a relatively uneventful day for routine migration. Yesterday's Little Bunting remained a regular visitor to a lucky garden in Southwell and a Caspian Gull - presumably the island's first ever lingerer showing up again - dropped in briefly off the Bill. The sea also produced further snippets of interest in the form of singles of Pomarine Skua and Velvet Scoter, but the only passage interest concerned a small movement of 4000 Wood Pigeons that developed overhead immediately after dawn.

What a phenomenal garden: Little Bunting brought Pete and Debby's garden list up to a whopping 155! © Debby Saunders...
