Black-necked Grebes

Lade - 0600hrs - Cool, clear, n4, warm and sunny later, ne4 - A nippy start to the day due to a brisk northerly airflow. With the white bulb back on the trap it was a return to a wider variety of moths, including Latticed Heath, new for the year.
The wind prevented any grounded migrants from showing on the storm beaches apart from 5 Yellow Wagtails and a few Swallows south. On south pit a Black-necked Grebe was the first of the autumn, while 3 more were reported from Kerton Road pit this evening (OL).
ARC - 1400hrs - From Hanson the usual Lapwings and eclipse wildfowl, plus 6 Goldies, 2 Common Sands, Little Stint, Blackwit, Pintail and 3 Garganeys. A Curlew Sand was seen earlier (BP).
