Early dawn Dunlin
An early start round the patch today, Corton OSW, Netposts and Ness point bushes plus the Parks all were devoid of migrants but an adult Dunlin moulting into winter plumage was reasonably confiding as it fed with 5 Turnstone along the northern walkway at Ness Point, which I photo's after seeing Maurice B. 30 Gannets seen in total flying past and out out to sea off Ness Point (a good swatch for me as I usually seeing nothing). I had family commitments for the rest of the day and was too early for the migrants that frustratingly, for me, arrived at all these localities in the afternoon (and were gone the next day!).
