Sunday 4th September 2016


Strong west to south-westerly winds are not normally great for migrants, and so it proved with minimal numbers of migrants about, the best being 10 Wheatear, 5 Yellow Wagtail and 1 or 2 Warblers seen. The same applied offshore as only very small numbers of waders passed south, including 6 Knot, 5 Turnstone and a Greenshank along with just 1 Common Scoter, whilst a lone Fulmar went north.

1 bird was ringed today, and that was a Blackcap.
