10 Oct – Tufted Duck and first Redwing of the autumn

Tony Taylor's update for Friday 10th October (adding to Grant's Guillemot bulletin below): "No significant daytime movement, but more to see. Tufted Duck and Teal on Pondsbury. Merlin, 3 Ring Ouzels, 1st Redwing of autumn, 60 Blackcaps. Small numbers of Chiffchaffs and Goldcrests." Tufted Duck is a pretty unusual bird for the island, with just 21 previous records, in spite of more than six decades of intensive recording by the Lundy Field Society.
