Sunday 2nd November

Just back from a week in North Berwick - no chance of any wildlife watching although I did see a few Buzzard, Eider, Gannet, Grey Seal, Stoat, Purple Sandpiper in passing.

This morning I made a attempt again for the Halling Red-backed Shrike - I heard it had been seen up until late last week. I spent almost 2 hours on Halling Common but no sign. I did note a Stoat, Little Egret, 30+ Redwing, several Fieldfare, 2 Snipe, 2 Green Woodpecker, Goldcrest, 3 Goldfinch, Grey Wagtail, 10+ Meadow Pipit and 10 Lapwing.
I dropped in very briefly to New Hythe and had a couple of flyover Siskin

Hi Steve, gripped by the stoat, might have to pay Halling a visit if one is in the area.

Hi Steve.
Shame about the Shrike.Still it could still be here. I stopped off at North Berwick myself on the way back from the Highlands of Scotland in July. Went to The Seabird Centre and then scoped up Bass Rock.I saw circa 60,000 prs of Gannets. I had read about it years ago, so I had to go and see for myself while I was in the area.What a site.
I'm looking forward to getting out and about again to do some birding.Nice photo's Steve.
