Saturday 22nd August

Despite the fog and overnight rain there were very few migrants on site with just single figure counts of Blackcap, Chiffchaff and Whitethroat in the bushes and a single Grey Wagtail overhead. Also in the bushes the first Coal Tit of the year and the long-staying Treecreeper. In the estuary wader counts included 443 Dunlin, 227 Ringed Plover, seven Turnstone and a Knot with 107+ Sandwich, 10 Common and a juvenile Arctic Tern also in front of the hide. Elsewhere at least 50 Common Tern were offshore in the evening.
