Roger Lane. Saturday Sightings

AS well as supplying me with valuable technical details Roger Lane stated the birds were sparse at Spit on his first visit for a long while.
Noted were four Curlews that flew in to roost on the Harbour Wall with multiple Oystercatchers.
Three Sandwich Terns "were chasing a gull which flew into Spit and it was my first adult, winter-plumage Mediterranean Gull of autumn ."
A Holly Blue butterfly was also recorded only Roger's third of the second brood.

"Today: not much at Par, except an almost dead conger eel gasping for breath (youngster only 3ft long), which I 'rescued' by returning to the sea, but it won't survive. Dead flatfish, crabs and cockles galore. "
