Wednesday 25th October 2006

Quite mild, with a light S2, 50% cloud, but reasonably bright.

A couple of days Flexi leave to catch up with some things at home, but still just managed to check out Boulmer briefly.

At 8.30 this morning a walk up to the North End,and a visit to Seaton Point in the afternoon had 1 female Wheatear, 2 Stonechat, 1 Blackbird that looked like a tired migrant on the point, 3 Goldcrests, 1 female Merlin, 10+ Robins, 1 Redwing on the beach, 700+ Golden Plover, 400+ Starlings, 17 Knot and 40 Mallard. 5 Yellowhammers and 6 Reed Buntings were at Seaton Point Farm.

We have been looking after Jane's sisters dogs at Christon Bank this week. Today on walking duty I had, 1 Jay ( could do with that at Boulmer) and a flock of 20 Redwings and 4 Fieldfares. A Stoat showed well on the roadside on the way up there.
