15th September

There was still little change in overall numbers of birds, but at least a couple of new migrants did arrive on another windy day. A North-Western Redpoll was almost expected given the prevailing wind direction; a Reed Warbler was less so. A Robin and a Willow Warbler were at Holland House, and a count of 65 Wheatears seemed to include a fresh batch of migrants near the lighthouse. A Little Stint was still on the west coast and an American Golden Plover (the other one this time) was nearby.
