Friday 30th November 2018

1540 - 1555 Sunny (sun setting!) & fine, 6c : Wigeon 4, Shoveler 4, Teal 12, Tufted 3, Lapwing c100, Herring & LBb Gulls c150, GBb Gull 10, Pied Wagtail, etc.

          More habitat loss.  The small area of oaks and blackthorn thickets at Wharf Approach (ramblers footpath) has been removed for warehousing. The site included a long standing viable colony of Purple Hairstreaks and a winter roost for Bullfinches and other finches, as well as many other interesting plants and insects now lost.
