Saturday 1st September

A Whinchat on Warren Point was the pick of the few migrants with eight White Wagtail, two Wheatear, two Willow and a Sedge Warbler also on site. In the estuary 32 Wigeon were new arrivals with other counts over the high tide including 425 Dunlin, 229 Ringed Plover, 120 Sandwich and a single Common Tern, 14 Sanderling, nine Greenshank, three Black-tailed Godwit and a Common Sandpiper. Elsewhere two Eider were close in off the seawall with 18 Common Scoter further out.

Wildlife News: The discovery of Alder Buckthorn growing in the car park provided another new plant for the recording area. At the Main Pond a single Water Vole was watched feasting on Mare's-tail, a welcome sight and the first record since the building of the new seawall in late 2014.
