Friday 21st September

The stormy weather again past long before daybreak but two Storm Petrel flew south with five egret sp, 68 Sandwich and three Arctic Tern whilst a summer Red-throated Diver and an Eider were on the sea. Overhead the first Skylark of the autumn and c40 Meadow Pipit.

Elsewhere at least 14 Chiffchaff were in the bushes, 1060 Oystercatcher, seven Bar and six Black-tailed Godwit, three Whimbrel and a Knot were in the estuary but a marauding Peregrine prevented a count of the smaller waders.
