The most notable passerines were a smart littoralis Rock Pipit, a new Common Redstart, 2 Ring Ouzels and 2 Lesser Whitethroats (one new bird, one long-stayer).Counts of other small migrants came to 1 Sand Martin, 1 House Martin, 2 Dunnocks, a Robin, the same Black Redstart, 72 Wheatears, 2 Fieldfares, 2 Song Thrushes, 1 Redwing, 1 Sedge Warbler, 6 Blackcaps, 7 Chiffchaffs, and 8 Willow Warblers.
The wader highlights were a Wood Sandpiper, a Greenshank, 15 Whimbrels and 45 Knots; a Common Tern and 30 Arctic Terns were counted; a Woodpigeon and 2 Collared Doves were seen, and 2 Sparrowhawks and a Merlin were the only raptors.
As is clear from the image, the Green-winged Teal didn't really come close enough to the hide for anything better than grainy, heavily vignetted digiscope photos to be taken. Nevertheless, the requisite features can clearly be seen, and it is interesting to compare the head pattern and shape of the white flank patch with the bird from two weeks ago. Are they one and the same? The jury is still out.
