Berry Head

Seawatching very poor (as usual mostly cleared out as the 2nd day of East wind), but a few bits: 7 Shoveler, 3 Pintail, 3 Bonxies, 2 Arctic Skuas and 2 Sandwich Terns. Dave Smallshire saw a flock of c20 Eider with a Pintail, settled on the sea which moved off.

In the quarry not only the Blyth's Reed Warbler but also a Reed Warbler (see photo) which at times doing the same circuit as the Blyth's. Also Blackcap and Chiffchaff.
