Sunday 23rd September

A day of two halves with rain and strong winds early morning but bright sunshine in the afternoon and quite warm in sheltered spots. These areas held a couple of Spotted Flycatcher, two Wheatear and a Whitethroat along with several Chiffchaff but numbers were seemingly down on yesterday.

In the estuary counts included 325 Wigeon, c200 Dunlin, 46 Knot, 27 Teal, 20 Sanderling and 10 Grey Plover with 38 Sandwich and a juvenile Arctic Tern offshore and a single Golden Plover in off at the seawall.

Wildlife News: A Clouded Yellow was the pick of the numerous insects that emerged to make the most of the first warm sunny conditions for a couple of days.
