Point Of Air 21st October

John Roberts and i decided to visit Point of Air in the hope of finding a migrant or 2.
Sadly no rare migrants in the Warren. Blackcap, chiffchaff, redwings and a few goldcrests were the best migrants.
A nice female merlin was on the saltmarsh.

The sea produced some good birding. 2 juv Poms drifted east, a bonxie sat on the sea and a single dark arctic skua powered through west. Other seabirds seen included 3 late gannets, a commic tern, 1 red throated diver, 3 guillimots and 6 grey plover with 40 sanderling on the beach.

Gresford flash goose flock held the long standing Ross' goose, along with a barnacle and 180 greylag.

Must be good for a sibe this weekend with the wind shifting to the south east.
