Horrid autumn- 21/8/17

A Horrid factoid- The central path through the scrub at the Point has a lovely natural snaking feel, yet the bushes have been cut in a straight line. the reason for this is obvious when the flatbed rubbish truck does the rounds every few days.


Point- horribly quiet. An overnight rainfront had sat just that bit too far north to bring any passerines down today, with just a single Blackcap on show.

Viz mig- singles of Swallow, Yellow Wagtail, Meadow Pipit and Swift were scant reward.

Offshore- counts were disturbed by a Marsh Harrier wandering off of Motney. 303 Turnstone was back up to form, and Redshank between Horrid and Motney broke the 750 barrier- 779 on view
