06 September 2010

A very quiet day at Westport with Nick recording, 2 Swifts, the pair of Ruddy Ducks still present, and a single Teal and Shoveler.

Called down to Westport late afternoon, very strong south/southeast breeze with the odd heavy shower, not many small birds about due to the high winds and branches were falling off the trees all around the lake, managed to count 103 Tufted Ducks, 21 Mute Swans, the pair of Ruddy Duck still present, 10 Great Crested Grebes of which 4 are 1st years, 5 Pochard, there was a good size Gull roost with 200+ Black-headed Gulls, 8 Lesser Black-backed Gulls and a 1st year Common Gull, which is the first of the autumn.
