Even though it was quite warm at Druridge tonight, sunny, with a light easterly moving to s'easterly wind, Autumn is upon us, I had 5 pale-bellied brent geese flying north offshore tonight!
Even though this heralds the beginning of Autumn, they were a welcome year tick as was arctic skua, two of them loitering in the bay. The Scoter flocks sum is now approaching 300.
116 brent goose
117 arctic skua
