14th July

The first Pintail for some months and 2 Woodpigeons were the best new arrivals, although 11 Swifts and 4 Sand Martins might also have been new migrants. A Manx Shearwater was the highlight of an uneventful seawatch, 36 Sanderlings were in Nouster Bay and 3 Common Redpolls remained at Holland House.

The recent influx of Common Redpolls and Siskins is quite unusual for the time of year. The Redpolls have included one juvenile bird and several worn-looking adults like this one.
