Waterbird Count – 2 November

Surprisingly quiet day today at the waterbird count, given that the south winds of yesterday grew northerly in the night. Some Buffleheads and Long-tails were still on the move, and large numbers of Red-breasted Mergansers were loafing on the water throughout the day, but overall numbers of moving ducks were much lower than they were in yesterday’s calm south winds.
White-winged Scoter – 1
Long-tailed Duck – 28
Bufflehead – 28
Common Goldeneye – 3
Common Merganser – 9
Red-breasted Merganser – 42
Duck sp. – 64
Horned Grebe – 2
Double-crested Cormorant – 1
Ring-billed Gull – 2
Herring Gull – 3
Other species:
Bald Eagle – 1
