Sunday 17th September

Two Mistle Thrush briefly in Dead Dolphin Wood were the pick of the migrants, and the first of the year, with two Kestrel on Warren Point, four Wheatear, a Goldcrest, a Willow Warbler and a tailless Yellow Wagtail also on site. Overhead a second Yellow Wagtail, 30 Swallow and 20 Meadow Pipit.

Elsewhere the summer plumaged Red-throated Diver remains offshore and counts from the estuary included 30 Sandwich and two Common Tern, 30 Dunlin, 25 Ringed Plover, five Mediterranean Gull, four Greenshank, two Grey Plover, a Whimbrel and the Slavonian Grebe.

Cirl Bunting (juvenile male) - Alan Keatley

Wildlife News: The population of Sand Lizard now confined to Warren Point, seemed to be easy pickings for the two Kestrel today.
