Friday 20th October

A Ruff was in the Bight with the Slavonian Grebe also in the estuary with the usual mix of species but no counts were received. Elsewhere a Great Northern Diver was offshore and late migrants included single Swallow and Wheatear.

Wildlife News: Although it was a sunny and warm day it definitely had a end of season feel about it for insects. Ivy bees have all but disappeared, leaving a few social wasps and some flies on the Ivy, including this Noon Fly Mesembrina meridiana. Still plenty of Red Admiral passing through along with a couple of Migrant Hawker, a Southern Hawker and a few Common Darter.
