Holy Island - Northumbrian Coast, 3 October 2020

October can be the best of months for seeing birds on Holy Island with the potential of many hundreds of wintering thrushes arriving on masse after flying across the North Sea. We should see large numbers of waders and duck, the only flock of Pale-bellied Brent Geese on the British mainland and either one of the UK's fastest hunters - the Merlin and the Peregrine Falcon. There's also the exciting chance of migratory birds from the European continent and even northern Asia if the winds turn easterly with possibilities like the Yellow-browed and Pallas's
