Waxwings seen to have cleared out – must have heard the council were building cages– just word of 9 Waxers today in Stornoway Woods.
Tong Sands SSSI seemed worth a lunchtime visit and sure enough a few bits to note down
Grey Plover – 11
Pale bellied Brent Goose – 1
Dunlin – 34
Bar tailed Godwit – 7
Greylag – 440 (mainly on surrounding farmland)
Greenshank – 3
Where are all the dabbling ducks though? Just 6 Teal and 21 Wigeon. There used to be flocks.
