Saturday 4th September

The first Little Stint of the autumn was in the Bight over the evening high tide, with 240+ Dunlin, 217 Ringed Plover, 29 Knot, eight Bar-tailed Godwit and a Turnstone. Also in the estuary six Greenshank, three Whimbrel, two Wigeon, a Black-tailed Godwit and a Kingfisher

Seawatching early morning saw five Balearic Shearwater head south with at least 295 Common Tern, a juvenile Black Tern, 30 Gannet, 30 Kittiwake, 26 Sandwich Tern, five Shelduck (two juvs turning back north), and single Arctic Skua and Red-throated Diver.

Elsewhere two Grey Wagtail, two Meadow Pipit, 56 Swallow and 15 House Martin passed overhead, three Wheatear and two Sedge Warbler were on site and 125 Sandwich Tern were roosting on Bull Hull at low tide.

Wildlife News: A Grayling butterfly was on Warren Point, the first record since 2015 and only the second since at least 1960.
