Splash Point 16/4/14

Two sessions today, both equally slow but enough interesting species were seen to make it just worth while. The late session saw a large number of Little Gulls moving east, especially late on where  flocks of 20 were watched. But by far the highlight for me were the 2 Garganey that passed in the morning.

Totals from 05.30-09.15:

Garganey - 2 (1 drk)
Arctic Skua - 2
Commic Tern - 4
Arctic Tern - 4
Sandwich Tern - 23
Sanderling - 7
Red-breasted Merganser - 5
Shoveler - 34
Black-throated Diver - 3 (all s/p)
Red-throated Diver - 10
Auk sp. - 9
Greylag Geese - 5
Brent Geese - 7
Whimbrel - 26
Gannet - 6
Teal - 2
Common Scoter - 148
Gadwall - 2
Pintail - 3
Little Gull - 4
Avocet - 1
Mediterranean Gull - 2

And totals between 15.15-19.15:

Little Gull - 162
Arctic Skua - 2
Commic Tern - 58
Sandwich Tern - 42
Diver sp. - 6
Gannet - 2

A small amount of time was spent on the Head between periods but nothing exciting seen.
