Friday 18th September

A Barred Warbler near the Cuckoo's Nest early morning was the highlight but unfortunately it was even less co-operative than yesterday's Wryneck and was not seen later in the day. Other migrants included three Jay, three Whitethroat and single Goldcrest, Garden Warbler, Wheatear and Whinchat.  Counts from the estuary included 252 Dunlin, 86 Ringed Plover, 70 Dark-bellied and six Pale-bellied Brent Geese, 24 Sanderling, 23 Knot and a Whimbrel. Elsewhere the Bonaparte's Gull was again along the beach and a Roseate Tern showed well off John's Watch with 69+ Sandwich Tern.
