The Brents are arriving.

All day yesterday there was skein after skein of Brent Geese arriving off the sea - some coming into the harbour whilst others flew past heading for winter quarters further west. The size of most flocks was abour 20 birds but one larger flock numbered 82....a beautiful sight and sound as they 'chatted' to each other as they arrived!

Todays highlight was a Short Eared Owl flying over the car park and being harassed by a Peregrine...probably an inexperienced young bird, as it soon made off.

A single Wheatear present on the beach and a few Swallows flying west along the beach.
