October 18, 2014 in Photo Posts, Read Posts, Sightings, The Bennerley Birders Pages by Bennerley

Max Temp. 18c., Wind Direction: South South Westerly, Wind Speed: 13mph, Visibility: Sun, Cloud, Moderate, Sunset: 18:04 BST.

I suppose a “tick list” of Great Skua, Long-tailed Skua and Glossy Ibis was a bit ambitious but the Skuas had been seen over the last few days and the Ibis is known to drop in sometimes, it would have been nice but it was not to be. A Snow Goose of dubious origin was seen, I don’t think it was the “Ross’s” that frequents Attenborough, I got an excellent view of it flying. Bird of the day was a single Green Sandpiper and Lapwings were strangely conspicuous by their absence ! There were a lot of Meadow Pipits, they were all over the place but no other “small brown jobs” apart from House Sparrows were Seen.

The Day List. Feral Rock Dove, Wood Pigeon, Mute Swan, Greylag Goose, Canada Goose, Egyptian Goose, Snow Goose, Mallard, Tufted Duck, Gadwall, Wigeon, Pochard, Common Gull, Great Black-backed Gull, Lesser Black-backed Gull, Black-headed Gull, Cormorant, Great Crested Grebe, Little Grebe, Coot, Moorhen, Grey Heron, Little Egret, Green Sandpiper, Robin, Blackbird, Mistle Thrush, Long-tailed, Tit, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Goldfinch, Chaffinch, Meadow Pipit, Green Woodpecker, House Sparrow, Staling, Carrion Crow, Magpie, Jackdaw, Rook, Kestrel, Buzzard.
