21st November 2020

A relatively overcast day, with sunny intervals and light showers in the afternoon, moderate/strong south-west winds and temperatures that reached 12 degrees C. A Black-throated Diver south past the Fog Station provided the seawatch highlight, albeit seven Great Northern Divers were also noteworthy. Three Little Gulls also flew south, with a Bonxie moving in the opposite direction.

Four Long-tailed Ducks and 120 Common Scoter sheltered below the South Cliffs, with 144 Teal (135 North Marsh, 9 Thornwick Pools), 64 Mallard and 37 Wigeon also in residence. Six Woodcock included a single in off, whilst passerine interest included a Siskin, 13 Lapland Buntings and six Snow Buntings.
