Pom Skua's East Tilbury 21/11/14

Today's Essex high tide survey site produced a good mix of wildfowl & waders.  Both Eider and Merganser were seen alongside Pintail and Brent in small numbers upriver, and an increase in Avocet and Dunlin with smaller numbers of Grey Plover and Bar-wits.

Several Little gulls passed through over high tide, as did two POMARINE SKUA which sheered upriver causing brief panic amongst the roosting waders before carrying on upriver.

The Corn Bunting flock now increasing to forty birds were the only noteworthy passerines.
