The female Pintail on the model boat pond we can live with missing (autumnal seawatch pull-back?) but lets hope today's late afternoon Shoveler sticks around - very difficult to see here!
Glaucous Gull - elusive juv seen mid-morning only - lost flying into the low sun towards Red Nab at/near HT. Is it based on an inshore platform?
Chough - seen once from the Near Naze on the Barrows
Med Gull - adults Red Nab, Knowlys field and a well marked "relict gull" 3CY on Red Nab, later on outfalls
Kittiwake - 2CY outfalls briefly, two adults trailing behind IOM ferry but quite a way behind it
Pale-bellied Brent Goose - two red nab on incoming tide
Shag - harbour mouth briefly mid pm
Oystercatcher - largest roost I've ever seen on heliport surface; possibly as many as 12,000 but very hard to estimate
Shoveler - female model boat pond (but no sign of any Pochard)
Gadwall - 19 the last two days
Ringed Plover - 47 roosting on Knowlys field at HT
Meadow Pipit - three by puddles on Knowlys field HT
