Monday 10th - As you were.

With a switch in the wind came a switch in the number and variety of birds recorded whilst seawatching. In 2 hours I recorded just 44 Brent Geese, whilst Bonxies increased to 18, however most gutting was I missed a Fea's Petrel that went north!
The Pied Flycatcher from yesterday was still present, but the bird that got the pulse racing the most was a Swift that dashed past me heading south, the shouting of "come back!!" worked and it banked back round and hawked over the common for several mintues enadbling me to nail it as just a Common Swift.
