27-09-07 Thursday

Thursday afternoon another session trying to get the Terns and Kittiwakes feeding in the river with better results before the sun went , so I went to the Sluice for a seawatch from 14:30- 18:30good selection of species including some good flocks of
Teal 90
Wigeon130
Common Scoter165
Barnacle 130
Sooty33
Velvet Scoter 3
Manx7
Arctic Skua3
also Red breasted merganser,Goosander,Shellduck, Bonxie, Scaup, Pintail a couple of little Auks though distant as was the large Shearwater which passed at 16:15 just too far to confirm as a Great and a small petrel at 16:30.plus the huge passage of Gannets, Gulls, Kittiwakes & still good numbers of Terns around Seawatching is more than just numbers it is a fantastic spectacle of bird movement , with the added expectation of something just that bit extra special may pass by, good days birding !!!!






ANGEL OF THE NORTH
FALLEN ANGEL








This does not look as spooky as it did floating past me, it's a rubber glove and thankfully noBODY in it !!!!!!!

Thanks for that st do you mean the Kittiwake shot ?,the light was not very good so they end up looking a bit dull,sometimes it's just taking the shots that I get the thrill from. don't forget to say hello if you see me around !!!
