Above -Boulmer sunrise by mobile phone...

This week has been settled and fine but cool with the first white frosts of autumn. As a consequence of the high pressure the birding has been, er, not as it could have been.

On Wednesday a House Martin was possibly my last hirundine of the year over our garden.

Today, an early Boulmer drive-by had 3 Fieldfares and a Blackbird in off. This evening a walk with Bunty around Seaton Point had 1 Red throated Diver N, 1 female Goosander S and 3 Grey Plovers on the shore.

I bumped into Mike from Kent. Once a 'passage migrant' at Boulmer, now a near 'resident'. He'd had 3 Velvet Scoter N. Nice one...
