Sept 5th.

With this weather front moving through i visited a very wet Shustoke this lunch time, with the anticipation of finding a sea bird. Nearby counties already have Sabines Gulls, Grey Phalaropes and Sandwich Terns , so its well worth getting wet to find something. Good numbers of Martins and Swallows were hawking low over the pool well over a 1,000 birds, House Martins being the most abundant. 51 Shoveler circled the pool several times before 17 landed and the rest flew off towards Ladywalk. Yellow Wagtail and Common Sandpiper were on the eastern shore and 27 L B B Gulls sat in the middle and 9 Cormorants were on the pontoon. Other wise its very quite, but still time for that sea bird to arrive.
