11th October

Not a bad day really with a moderate westerly breeze and it kept largely dry; the Dusky Warbler was re-trapped in Holland during the morning along with the Red-breasted Flycatcher still and a new Yellow-browed Warbler while elsewhere the Short-toed Lark was still present and a Siberian Chiffchaff was in Ancum Willows.

                Other migrants included 9 Robins, 20 Wheatears, 4 Song Thrushes, 9 Redwings, single Lesser Whitethroat and Garden Warbler, 4 Blackcaps, 7 Chiffchaffs, 2 Goldcrests, 2 Goldfinches and a Lapland Bunting.   Some decent wader totals comprised a Little Stint in amongst 42 Purple Sandpipers, 64 Dunlin, 98 Ringed Plover, 3 Ruff, 3 Jack Snipe and 317 Snipe while the Whooper Swan family, the Scaup and 5 Red-breasted Mergansers were still present.
