Treble Lines - a common UK species only noted here in small numbers

 Another grey, overcast day with a spell of rain in the morning after a night of heavy, persistent rain; there was though, a little spread of new birds across the area especially after it brightened up a bit which included 3 Chiffchaffs, a little push of 28 Common Terns which went north after the rain stopped, 3 Eiders on the sea at first light, an odd flock of 33 Kittiwakes which spiralled up high over the sea before appearing to move inland (not what Kittiwakes are supposed to doing at this [or any] time of year!), 8 Lesser Whitethroats, a Little Egret south, 2 Lesser Redpolls, 5 Reed Warblers, 11 Wheatears, 6 Whitethroats and a Willow Warbler.

Ringing: Wren 1, Willow Warbler 1, Chiffchaff 3, Lesser Whitethroat 1, Reed Warbler 1, Lesser Redpoll 1
