Wednesday 18th September

A day of Bottlenose Dolphins - beginning with a single individual seen off Marine Drive, followed by many sightings of several groups of 8 to 14+ individuals, mostly moving north. The Red-crested Pochard remains at Seamer Tip Pool, where there was also a Great Spotted Woodpecker, and a Blackcap was spotted at Burton Riggs. A juvenile Long-tailed Skua, 4 Sooty Shearwaters and a Balearic Shearwater flew north past Long Nab, and a Great Northern Diver flew south. Other highlights from Long Nab include 16 Pale-bellied Brent Geese, a Pintail, 90 Red-throated Divers (75 of them going south), a Mediterranean Gull, 17 Arctic Skuas and 24 Bottlenose Dolphins. A single Pink-footed Goose was at Harwood Dale Lake this evening.
