30th November 2017

Weather: NNW 5-6, good vis, 1/8 cloud

A brief visit produced the usual suspects with 250+ Brent Geese all hunkered down sensibly sheltering from the bitingly cold blustery northerly wind as well as 10 Eiders split into smaller groups around the East side and off the North End.

Waders were again evident around the ebbing gutter but counting was difficult today.

A single Little Egret was also sheltering behind the reefs before temporarily sitting out by the gutter.

At least three Song Thrushes and a single Blackbird were noted on the island but there had been no obvious cold weather arrival yet.
