17 October - another ROCK PIPIT

With Steve Rodwell late this afternoon a SCANDINAVIAN ROCK PIPIT was along the shore near the new overflow and the drake GARGANEY was still amongst the teal on the mud close to the hide. A DUNLIN was amongst the lapwings and gulls but a low flying balloon put up most of the birds present, resulting in the gulls heading off early. This morning Steve saw a Common Goldeneye in Cemetery corner.

Two more Common Goldeneyes were discovered by Paul Reed on the main lake at College Lake this morning, which had moved to the marsh by mid day. The Goosander was still present also, again on the far side of the tern island (David Bilcock).
