Saturday 5th September

Migrants included the first two Siskin of autumn overhead with a couple of Meadow Pipit and a Grey Wagtail, whilst in the bushes there were single Garden and Sedge Warbler, with a Whinchat in Greenland Lake. In the estuary a Little Stint hid amongst the smaller waders, counts of which included 269 Dunlin, 123 Ringed Plover, 51 Sanderling and 29 Knot. Also from the hide 36 Wigeon, 21 Teal, seven Mediterranean Gull and the Slavonian Grebe. Elsewhere 117 Shag and 74 Sandwich Tern were feeding offshore, a mobile Coal Tit was in the Buffer Zone and the Treecreeper was in Dead Dolphin Wood.
