Turnstone Count

I was ready for another good auk movement past the Clifftop first thing yesterday, but this didn't happen. However there was evidently a concentration of fish close in below the house, which attracted a notable 33 Razorbills, 15 Guillemots, 10 Gannets and 10 Kittiwakes. 42 Red -throated Divers and an adult Mediterranean Gull headed west.

Later in the morning we carried out one of my occasional Turnstone Counts, walking through increasing rain from Rock-a-Nore to the De la Warr Pavilion in Bexhill. Good to see so many people doing a beach clean along Hastings seafront, and to count 145 Turnstones- a welcome return to form after some very low counts, and the highest since Oct 2015, when 182.
