Splash Point 21/4/14

Annoyingly I have misplaced my notepad so totals may be a little inaccurate. Highlight for us this morning was a Shore Lark flying in off, as did a Short-eared Owl. Good passage in the first hour but then slowed down quite significantly. An afternoon dip down to Pagham was then in order for a Subalpine Warbler. At least it made a change then looking out at sea.

Totals between 5.30-1.15 are:

Shore Lark - 1 flew in off, circled and called a couple of times, before continuing north over the town.
Black-throated Diver - 6
Red-throated Diver - 11
Diver sp. - 4
Velvet Scoter - 6
Common Scoter - 500+
Pintail - 1
Red-breasted Merganser - 2
Arctic Skua - 9
Great Skua - 4
Commic Tern - ca. 40
Common Tern - 6
Little Gull - 17 (maybe more)
Sandwich Tern - 70
Turnstone - 1
Sanderling - 5
Whimbrel - 30+
Bar-tailed Godwit - ca. 80
Curlew - 14
Mediterranean Gull - 40
Short-eared Owl - 1 in off
Gannet - 60+

There may be other things, but without the notepad I can't quite remember.

Only birds of note down at Pagham were 2 Cuckoos.
