Saturday 28th September

The first Pintail of the autumn was with 350 Wigeon in the estuary with 43 Sandwich and six Common Tern, 14 Knot and the Slavonian Grebe. The first Mistle Thrush of the autumn was overhead along with a Tree and 40 Meadow Pipit, 45 Swallow and 10 Skylark, whilst grounded migrants included 12 Blackcap, five Chiffchaff, a Whitethroat and a Wheatear.

Seawatching saw 960 Gannet and four Arctic Skua head south early morning with 103 Kittiwake and two Arctic Skua passing during the evening.

Wildlife News: A few fresh looking Painted Lady were on the wing, probably a new generation, also third generation Wall and Common Blue in the Crocus Compound.
