Wednesday 28th October

No news was received yesterday but if the Warren was anything like other south coast locations a site record for Goldcrest was probably missed at the very least. Today the bushes still held at least eight Goldcrest, four Chiffchaff and three Blackcap but the highlight was the first Yellow-browed Warbler of the year around the First Pond. Other migrants included an immature female Ring Ouzel on Warren Point and later Greenland Lake, a rarer bird than Yellow-browed on site, a couple of Redpoll overhead and a late Swallow. Elsewhere a drake Pintail was in the estuary with the Wigeon, a single Pale-bellied Brent was with the Dark-bellied Brent Geese, 299 Dunlin, 33 Grey Plover, nine Sanderling and single Knot and Bar-tailed Godwit were in the Bight and two Dartford Warbler were on Warren Point.
