Another day on the coast!

A second morning sward measuring was spent in the Elwick area - adjacent to the shore.  There was a large flock of 450+ pink footed geese, bean goose (1) and smaller numbers of light-bellied brent (52) feeding mainly on grass fields.  Good numbers of curlew were found in the pastures and there was one flock of 20 golden plover.

There were few passerines but up to 5 male skylarks were singing in one stubble field.
