Winter's Back

12th. September

A very late start this morning but just in time to count 370 ringed plovers on the beach with 5 dunlin, the c.100 turnstones preferring to roost on the 'barge'.  Moving up to the Sportsman and a walk up to the start of the wall revealed 2 wheatears, c.80 linnets and a dozen mipits. Out on the sea 2 wigeons and 35 brents were almost mid-channel, very early to see this amount and talking to one of the chalet owners who estimated c.90 yesterday plus 2 redstarts hanging about.  Lastly, a tired looking buzzard came in off the sea it appeared and was attacked by crows as it looked for somewhere to perch and rest.
