Splash Point - 2/4/2005

A crazy seawatch that provided the largest passage of Garganey ever recorded past Splash Point. The largest flock being a flock of 15 birds, whilst all flocks were observed moving close inshore, and I seem to remember a couple of flocks circling just offshore and continuing on their way. 

Only highlights listed:

Whimbrel - 4
Avocet - 7
Velvet Scoter - 1
Garganey - 31
Eider - 6
Little Gull - 1

Obviously the Garganey passage was noted elsewhere, with Dungeness recording over 50 birds.
