And then it was gone!

08.15-10.00 from The Point this morning saw  24 Brent Geese, 5 Red-throated divers, 7 Common Scoter, 1 Arctic Tern, 2 Sandwich Terns, 3 Razorbills, 4 Guillemots, 6 Auk sp, 1 Kittiwake, 1 Med Gull, 42 Great-crested Grebes, 2 Swallows and  the 2w Glaucous Gull which flew half way to France before coming back. On the beach 2 Merlins, 1 Yellow-legged Gull and a couple of Siskins and a Redpoll over.
On the reserve 7 Dunlin, 1 Little Stint, 2 Swallows, 5 Cetti's Warblers, 2 Chiffchaff, 1 Blackcap, 2 Green Woodpeckers, 4+ Marsh Harriers, 1 Bittern, the Great White Egret and another Merlin.
This afternoon a Yellow-browed Warbler was found on the sheltered side of some Sallows on the edge of The Desert. I was lucky enough to be very near by as it showed briefly a couple of times in a few minutes then presumably disappearing into the forest of Sallows which were being battered by the strong wind.
