16th October 2010

A couple of hours seawatching this morning produced lots of birds, the majority of which were well out and heading south very fast. For me the highlight was a relatively close in Manx Shearwater.

The only "little bird" of note was a Brambling in the village.

Hi! I couldn't find another way to send you my sightings from 16th Oct so hopefully this will work?! Between 1-2pm seawatching from the beach car park I saw the following. Juv Sabine's Gull (north at 1.40pm), Arctic Skua, drake Eider, 3 Kittiwake, 99 DB Brent Geese, 20 Pintail, 29 Wigeon, 8 RT Diver and 4 Guillemot. I live in Herts but my dad lives in Norfolk and the dunes are my adopted local patch! Ian Bennell.
