Friday 4th September

A Lesser Whitethroat along the Back Path was the pick of the new migrants with five Whitethroat, three Wheatear and two Whinchat also present. In the estuary the Little Stint was still present with 280 Dunlin, 115 Ringed Plover, 44 Wigeon, 31 Sanderling, 10 Knot, three Greenshank and a Kingfisher.

Wildlife News: Autumn Lady's-tresses are out in record numbers with over 1000 flowering spikes in Greenland Lake this year. Conversely there have been low numbers of dragonflies reported this year, but Common Darter numbers are beginning to build.
