Two More Year Ticks

Today was the day we finally had proper decent fall conditions.....the day I went back to work!!!

Walking to my car in the driveway just before 7am, a Tree Pipit flew over west in the gloom, calling as it went. Tree Pip is a surprisingly scarce spring bird on patch, and although it was great to see, it annoyed me even more that I had to go to work!!!

After my shift, I 'endured' an hour's seawatch from 17:15. It got worse and worse as the watch went on as the wind dropped and cloud cleared, but I still managed another year tick with three Common Terns west (all singles). Also noted three Common Scoters, 12 Manxies (some quite close), 13 Black-headed Gulls and one Razorbill.

Roll on tomorrow...
