Monday 3rd October

A clear, still start was soon interrupted by a fresh onshore breeze that persisted all day and evaporated passage overhead to reduce counts to 52 Swallow, 35 Meadow Pipit, 18 Pied Wagtail, five Grey Wagtail and three Jackdaw.   

Selected counts during the spring tide in The Bight were 324 Dunlin, 67 Grey Plover, 60 Ringed Plover, eight Sanderling, three Knot and a Curlew Sandpiper.  Also in the estuary or at sea, six Pintail, four Sandwich Tern, three Shelduck a Mediterranean Gull and an Arctic Tern

Blown out, among the bushes were found only a few Chiffchaff, also seven Greenfinch, three Blackcap, two Goldcrest, two Song Thrush and a Jay
