Five more Whoopers seen this morning. Typical! You wait two years for a bird, and now they are queuing up.

New in this morning were about half a dozen Long-Tailed Duck. Starting to feel like winter....

I'm impressed by you guys taking photos of military aircraft in foreign nations. The attached photo of an aircraft passing over my patch, is as far as I would go. ;)

Whoopee

I was far too keen this morning; arriving in at the car park half an hour before it was light enough to see anything. Setting off down the path at half past seven, I was disappointed to find no...

All Blackbirds & Thrushes have vacated the area as of this afternoon. All but one Yellowhammer have gone as well. I'm used to seeing Blackbird and Thrush out on the platform, but only have one record...

Wet, Wet. Wet

Following the easterlies of Thursday, that seemed to have sparked mass migration, I decided to check out the Seafield area on Saturday morning, despite heavy rain. There was little wind, so I was...

More Purps

More Purple Sandpipers in this afternoon. Fourteen at the harbour, but also two on a rock off Bullfinch Cove. These two are the first time I've seen the species beyond the tower area.

I've not...

Purps

The Purple Sandpipers have finally made it. Six counted this afternoon, although I suspect that there were a few more on the seaward side of the rocks.

Over the weekend, I kept an eye out for the...

I'm not sure 3 & 4 are Dunlin. 6 looks like a Dunlin to me as I'm seeing a black belly patch, and I'd assume 5 is also a Dunlin.

3&4 are maybe Knot. Still an area I'm learning in, so don't take my...

Winter Changes

Tuesday afternoon, I returned to the Seafield strip, after my three week enforced absence. It seemed that all of my summer birds have now headed off to warmer climes, with the exception of a few...

No change with the winds. No change with the birds. Only GBBGs, Herring Gulls, Gannets and Fulmars about.

More Westerlies

Westerly winds continue to destroy what should be the platform's peak migration period. Met office 5 day forecast predicts more of the same.

It is so poor right now, it's almost laughable. Highlight...
