Another hour at Gore Pt produced 2-3 Barn owl, the Short-eared was again showing well, plus a female Merlin went hurriedly overhead with prey, pursued by 2 Kestrel.
2000+ Pinks, dropped in on the grazing marsh & Robert pulled out a Barnacle Goose amongst them, interestingly it was still with these birds a couple of hours later on the sugar-beet fields inland, proving it's provenance!!
I managed to eventually locate c15 Ruff, a grip back from the boys whom had 40 odd yesterday. Obviously quieter on the sea, few Red-throats & GC Grebes, plus 2 Kittiwakes west.
