The day began slowly; perhaps as would be expected in a northwesterly. Only 5 Goldcrest were recorded today along with just 7 Chiffchaff and 1 Willow Warbler. No Wheatears were recorded. Four Blackcap were in Lingham Lane whilst the Kingfisher made a brief appearance from the bridge.
A single Jay was a sign there was some movement happening and the usual Med Gull and Greenshank were to be found on the foreshore.
A migrant Great spotted Wooddpecker made a brief stop in the 'Greenacres' bungalow garden where a Spotted Flycatcher spent most of the day catching insects from the highest poplar. We have had good numbers through the Lighthouse this autumn. This charismatic bird showed well so the photo opportunity wasn't passed up!!
