Basically 'hunt the migrants' at the moment with meagre rewards although this male Redstart, occasionally singing, which is a rare sound to hear here. Supporting migrants were 5 Swallow, 2 Brambling, 2 Chiffchaff, 2 Wheatear, Blackcap & Chaffinch. A single flock of 12 Whimbrel flew north & a Buzzard went high north over the near dock. The regular Black Red was only very occasionally singing on the Fort & the tame Sanderling was present on its usual patch of beach.

Ringing: 1 Blackcap, 1 Chiffchaff, 1 Linnet.
