Thursday 18th August

A cream-crown Marsh Harrier flew east just before 8am, later being seen along the coast at Sidmouth, was the second of the year but the other site scarcity to fly over was making it's first appearance of the year, a Green Sandpiper circled the Bight and headed north an hour later. Other records included the first two Wigeon and Teal of the autumn, 246+ Ringed Plover, 144 Dunlin, 24 Sanderling, 17 Knot, four Greenshank, three Black and two Bar-tailed Godwit, three Turnstone, a Common Sandpiper and the first Grey Plover for several weeks.
