Distant Divers

Only birds of note today during our porp watch (phenomenal numbers and Risso's) two Great Northern Divers about a mile away!

Drim to Goodwick Parrog 2nd Dec.

Lots of Thrushes, a Jay, a Water Rail in a small stream about half way along. On the Rugby Pitch more Thrushes including 2 Redwing & a few Oystercatcher with 2 Redshank in tow.
On the beach at the Parrog at the Ocean Lab end a freshly washed up quite large Jellyfish. Bella very kindly poses to give some idea of size !

Flagpoles 15.00 1st Dec.

Approx 400 gulls congregated, quite a few Common Gull now & 3 Adult Meds.
In the garden, 2 Marsh Tits around but looks like only one visiting the feeders.

Some Strumble Birds from today

There were hundreds if not thousands of gulls, (mainly black headed) feeding in and outside of the tide race but the only birds of note was this fly by Diver above  (BT I thought but a bit distant) and below five scoter four males closely followed by a guillemot.

 This Extremely Pale Buzzard is a bird I have seen a couple of times over the past few months but only now managed to get a shot of . Its obviously camera shy!

Drim to Rugby Club Goodwick.

A quiet walk with just the usual Robins & Blackbirds was brightened up by first a Siskin on top of a tree near the ponds & then a Firecrest with approx. 10 Goldcrests a bit further along. As I passed the pitch the Fishguard Under 20's conceded a try so that wasn't good.
