After the big excitement of yesterdays Spurge Hawk-moth, today was rather different in terms of being rather quiet.

Migration is slowly starting to pick up for the Autumn with species such as 8 Goldfinch, 8 Sand Martin, 8 Common Tern, 6 Swallow, 4 Sanderling, 3 Yellow Wagtail, 3 Little Egret, 2 Great-spotted Woodpecker, 1 Meadow Pipit, 1 Reed Warbler, 1 Chiffchaff and 1 Blackcap all on the move and seen today.

A group of 4 Sanderling on the beach on the nature reserve this morning, (above).

Ringing: 1 bird ringed this morning in the form of 1 Chiffchaff.
