Sunday 13th November

Firstly, there was a Little Gull on Saturday (S Haynes). Sunday when I got over it was rather quiet with a light easterly wind blowing. I went over in the morning seeing little although I saw Willow Tit in Warbler Corner and the Kingfisher was seen a couple of times. There was also a small group of half a dozen Siskin along the river just west of the bat box. The paddocks were quiet busy with nearly 20 Pied Wagtail and mixed finches, these were all put up by a Sparrowhawk which buzzed through. It was a lovely morning, but as is the case on such days the car park was heaving. My main problem is that in winter/autumn the sun is that low looking south is nearly impossible.

Got a call from the Captain so I ended up going over again at about 3.30pm but the boats were still out and although we waited until well after 4.15pm the boats were still out and there were very few gulls although there were around ten Common Gull down the far end.
