Thursday 10th October 2013

Highlight of the day was a flyover Lapland Bunting, only the 11th site record. Other visible movement overhead was again hampered by the lack of cloud but totals included 116 Meadow Pipit, 62 Pied and a Grey Wagtail, 10 Skylark, eight Goldfinch, six Swallow, six Chaffinch, four Reed Bunting and a Redpoll. Grounded migrants included a late Whinchat, 15 Chiffchaff, five Stonechat, and four Wheatear. Elsewhere a Red-throated Diver was offshore, with 11 Shelduck and a Pintail in the estuary.

Wildlife News: A Clouded Yellow was on Warren Point with a third generation Wall Brown along the Dune Ridge.
