Saturday 30th July 2016
Feels more like autumn when the odd Willow Warbler is coming through. Other migrant passerines on site this morning include a couple of Reed Warbler & Wheatear. The Treecreeper is still with us with a Sparrowhawk paying a brief visit (only very rarely see Sparrowhawks here in mid-summer). Offshore movements almost non-existent although a small group of Sandwich & Common Terns were loitering off the point.
Webb's Wainscot is a nationally scarce species frequenting reed beds that is only rarely noted here. Also worth a mention is The Gem which is a migratory species we usually only see later in the autumn.
4 birds ringed: 3 Linnet, 1 Reed Warbler.
