30th/31st October

Sightings on the 30th included a fem/imm red-breasted merganser off Kirkholme, 1 scaup, 3  whooper swans and a couple of crossbills over.

On the 31st, a morning visit found the merganser off 2nd field, 1 Little egret, fem. marsh harrier, 86 Barnacle geese in the winter wheat field (no rings), a flock of 6 Bullfinches in the gorse hedge, small flocks of siskin and redpoll over and 3 mistle thrushes. Nowt in Decoy.

A late afternoon visit to Kirkholme produced a confiding water rail showing well along the reedbed edge by the jetties.
