Tuesday 15th September
The first Red-throated Diver of the autumn was offshore but the winds produced little else. In the estuary 20+ Pintail flew towards Exmouth with 667 Wigeon, five Mediterranean Gull and the Slavonian Grebe in Shutterton Creek, 333 Curlew, 188+ Redshank, seven Greenshank and a Whimbrel were on the Railway Saltmarsh and 190 Dunlin, 13 Black-tailed Godwit and 15 Dark-bellied Brent Geese were in the Bight. Elsewhere the Pectoral Sandpiper was still present in an area with no general access, a Coal Tit was along the Dune Ridge and three Grey Wagtail and a Raven were overhead.
