Roger Lane Reports.

Monday Evening.

" Firstly stopping at Charlestown, where there were only 6 Gannets west (one on water offshore), and 3 Shags west to Porthpean.
Then on to Porthpean where there were 10+, Shags, 4+, Cormorants; 2 more Gannets west, a solitary Fulmar flew around the colony ledges (bit late !) and in the flock of BHGulls was my second Mediterranean Gull (ad.wint plumage) for autumn.
Still time to go to Par but very little about, on PBP were a couple of old friends: 1 x Little Egret and 1 x Bar-Headed Goose. Also Swallow numbers must be nearing 100+ (for Pool roost). Light too poor to pick out and Sd.Martins.
Best sighting, I guess, was my third MED.Gull for autumn on Par Beach in BHGull flock, another ad. in wint. plumage. Also in the Bay were 2 x Sand.Terns and LBBGulls had suddenly increased from 1 or 2 to 15+ (strong migrants)".

Thanks for the report Roger.
