Sunday 9th September

In the estuary selected counts included 289 Redshank, 277 Curlew, 211 Dunlin, 52 Wigeon, 12 Knot, 11 Grey Plover, 10 Teal, eight Bar and a Black-tailed Godwit, seven Whimbrel, five Mediterranean Gull, five Sanderling, two Greenshank and the Slavonian Grebe.

No sign of the Wryneck today with migrants limited to half a dozen Chiffchaff and Blackcap in the bushes with three Rook, two Jackdaw and single Sand Martin, Yellow and Grey Wagtail overhead. Elsewhere the two Eider were off Langstone Rock and the first Coal Tit of the year was seen in the Entrance Bushes accompanied by a Great Tit being an excellent Coal & Long-tailed Tit mimic.

This bird has summered at the Warren. Ringing information is still awaited but it is thought to be French.
