A Slow Day

From The Point first thing this morning the sea was very quiet with just a few Gannets off shore. Over the beach a few each of Redpoll,Siskin, Linnet, Chaffinch and Goldfinch, also a Merlin caught a passerine over the beach and the Yellow-legged Gull and Glaucous Gull were in there usual haunts.
Round The Trapping area and The Desert a few more Finches over, also 6+ Chiffchaff, 5 Goldcrest, 1 Skylark, 2 Great Spotted Woodpeckers, 3 Green Woodpeckers and 2 Sparrowhawks.
After receiving news from the ARC that the Penduline Tit was showing I made my way there and was lucky enough to get a very brief view of it, although it did show well again after I left. Other birds seen around the ARC were the usual wild fowl, 4+ Water Rail (heard), 60+Golden Plover, 1 Little Stint, 50+ Lapwing, 2+ Common Buzzarsd, 3+ Marsh Harriers, 3 Sparrowhawks, 1 Merlin, 1 Peregine, 2 Chiffchaff, 6 Goldcrest, a Flock of c100 Fieldfare, 4 Redwing and 2 each of Great Spotted and Green Woodpeckers. A Grass Snake was basking by the path at the Water Tower.
