September often means Sea watching at Reculver and gives the chance to get some seabirds on the year list and see the migration as hirundines leave and Geese and waders, Auks fly by on their journeys. The last few days has seen a strong north westerly wind at Reculver and I have managed to fit in a few sessions along with a good few other birders at the towers. Seawatching can be the most boring of events as often it can be very quiet and the conditions predicted do not turn up the goods but sometimes you get a good passage of birds flying past with some passing by hopefully close enough for a few shots. Birds I have managed to see in the past few days have included c50 Great Skua, c30 Arctic Skua, 3 Pomarine Skua, 1 juvenile Sabines Gull flew west close inshore yesterday, 7 Knot, 4 Sooty Shearwater, 2+ Arctic Tern, c20 Common Tern, 1 Brent Goose, c30 Wigeon, c20 Dunlin, 4 Sandwich Tern, 1 Snipe, 1 Hobby and c20 Common Scoter. A great variety and well worth the hours of staring out to sea. Hopefully a few more sea watches as the month continues with Auks, Petrels and Shearwaters all good possibilities.
