      Wednesday 17 October 2012 - On our regular third-Wednesday birdwalk, we
      tallied 58 species, unusually high for this late in the year. Nothing
      particularly rare, except perhaps the vocalizing pair of Peregrine
      Falcons who flew right over us - we might have missed them if they
      hadn't been making such an unusual noise! Only the second time I have
      heard that "rusty gate" call.

      Also somewhat unusual were the 13 Black Oystercatchers perched together
      on one rock. At least 10 were clearly adults, one was clearly a
      juvenile, and two we couldn't be sure of.

      Cheers,
