Adur (18 November 2012)

18 November. After yesterday's excitement of 7 colour-ringed gulls on the Adur at low tide I was hopeful of seeing some more today but there were only 150-200 gulls present and the only CR was Greater Black-backed Gull "C".  Two Peregrines flew over heading west, presumably from Southwick Power Station, and a Grey Wagtail was heard.  Between visiting the tip and our allotment I had a quick look for the Black-necked Grebe on Southwick Canal but only saw 4 Little Grebes and a Peregrine on the chimney (as I had a couple of times going to work).  A Redpoll was heard flying over the allotment while a walk round the Adur with Megan in the afternoon produced very little - not unexpectedly as the tide was high.

Jersey ringed Greater Black-backed Gull C
Grey Plover, one of 7 seen on the Adur today
Lapwing and Common Snipe on the Adur, the latter are infrequently seen away from the  saltings by the houseboats
a smart bird when seen well
