4th September

Last night's poor weather resulted in a fair spattering of common migrants as hoped, including 3 barred warblers at Holland (2) and Roadside Stores (1). 2 tree pipits and singles of lesser whitethroat, whitethroat and blackcap were the first of those species this autumn, and other passerines being 5 garden warbler, 11 willow warbler, 2 redstart, 8 pied flycatcher and 3 crossbill. 3 grey heron came in, 4 ruff were amongst the golden plover, a flock of 33 black-tailed godwit at Bewan is a good island count and snipe were more abundant today with 82 logged.
