Goat Willow (Salix caprea). Growing on the fort wall. This is the first site record for twenty years.

This is the beginning of the end for autumn migration now, so things are much quieter. Most sightings came from looking out to sea, as 27 Knot, 24 Dunlin, a lone Gannet and 44 Common Scoter went south, with another 34 Common Scoter north. Apart from that, 1 Little Egret and 4 Skylark went south over and 3 Stock Dove appear to be moving around the site.

Ringed 4 birds; 2 Blackbird and 2 Goldfinch.
