RW, 13th October

Leach's Petrel during another north blow. Click for a bigger picture.

Great Skua in moult. One of three at the dam end today. This one departed south-east over the dam.

Most of the upper greater coverts were missing revealing what I presume were the white bases of the secondaries.

Brent Goose family. Came from the west and departed east.

Grey Phalarope

It either rode the incoming waves or just went through them.

23 Whooper Swans (4 juveniles) flew south-east over Normanton late afternoon.

Migration in action.
