Splash Point, Harry's Bush and Abberton Reservoir 3/10/10

A seawatch at Splash Point this morning produced a 3rd calender year Pomarine Skua, 1 Arctic Skua and 2 Great Skuas. Also 4 Little Gulls, Red-throated Diver and good numbers of Commic Terns and Gannets moving east.

Little Gulls flying east past Splash Point.

A walk to the only sheltered area on Seaford Head (Harry's Bush) produced a very late Spotted Flycatcher and a Chiffchaff.
Whilst lazing around at home, news of a Semipalmated Sandpiper in Essex soon got me into action, so i got up there in 2.5 hours and had good but brief views of this hard to get yank wader. Also present were 2 Curlew Sandpipers, 2 Spotted Redshanks and 2 Little Stints.
