Saturday 8th September

A Wryneck on Warren Point was a welcome surprise considering the relative lack of other migrants on site, although 17 Chiffchaff, three Reed and a Willow Warbler were in the bushes and 70 House Martin, 42 Swallow and four Grey Wagtail were overhead.
Elsewhere a flock of seven Balearic Shearwater flew south and the two Eider were off the seawall whilst counts in the estuary included 50+ Wigeon, 16 Sanderling, 13 Knot, 11 Grey Plover and six Greenshank.
Wildlife News: Fewer butterflies and dragonflies on the wing in over cast conditions but this Phantom Cranefly was in the Entrance Bushes.
