2007 SIGHTINGS
This was a relatively quiet year with 173 species reported. Just one new species were recorded for the first time; a flyover Bee eater in May. Despite the low total there were some notable occurrences of Red-throated Diver, an influx of Storm Petrels, a Leach’s Petrel, only the second record of pale-bellied Brent Goose, the drake Ring-necked Duck, Pomarine Skuas (including a flock of 9), Razorbill, Guillemot, Little Auk, Little and Sandwich Tern, an Avocet, several Spotted Redshanks, a freshly predated Grey Phalarope escaped live views. A good selection of raptors including Osprey, Marsh Harrier, 2 sightings of Hen Harrier and 3 of Red Kite, Barn Owls and at least 5 Short-eared Owls. A Grey Partridge, a Richards Pipit, at least 6 Ring Ouzels, a singing Nightingale, 2 Firecrests, 2 Pied Flycatchers, a Wood Warbler, a Siberian Chiffchaff, Tree Sparrows, a Lapland Bunting and 3 Snow Bunting records. Once again there were some disappointments with no Eider, Garganey, Black Tern, Bewick’s Swans or Black Redstart being seen this year.
