The objects of this survey are: 1. To introduce NENBC members to the joys of seawatching; 2. To help NENBC members improve their skill at identifying birds in flight at sea; 3. To map the likely route of wildfowl, seabirds and waders as they fly around the coast; 4. To estimate the speed of flight of some of the species recorded; 5. To assess the effect of weather conditions and tide on the rate and timing of passage. Locations and leads are listed below. You may want to bring the following with you: • A folding chair each, rather than standing for 3+ hours! • If you have a telescope & tripod do bring them along, as well as your bins. • A flask of hot drink and a snack may be a good idea. • Waterproof and warm clothing if the weather looks inclement.
