Sunday 22nd September

The change in weather brought hopes of filling in the only gap in the Recording Area's September day by day rarity table, but it was not to be with the bushes blown out and seemingly quiet. New arrivals were present in the estuary though with 183 Wigeon and 88 Teal counted along with 1420 Oystercatcher, 526 Curlew, 322 Redshank, 141 Ringed Plover, 90+ Dunlin, 37 Sandwich Tern, 30 Turnstone, 10 Dark-bellied Brent Geese, six Greenshank, four Snipe and the Slavonian Grebe.

Wildlife News: A single Rush Veneer was on Warren Point and a Yellow-barred Peat Hoverfly Sericomyia silentis, the second site record was in the Back Meadow.
