Records from the evening high tide included 78 Dunlin, 63 Ringed Plover, 52 Sandwich and two Common Tern, 22 (15 juv) Sanderling, five Bar and three juvenile Black-tailed Godwit, two Greenshank, two Shoveler on Finger Point, two Peregrine, one on a kill in the Bight and a juvenile Knot.
Three Whinchat in Greenland Lake, the first of the autumn, were the pick of the migrants with four Wheatear and single Garden, Willow and Reed Warbler also present. High overhead a juvenile Grey Heron flew in off the sea heading north.
Wildlife News: Rush Veneer still present in grassy areas but numbers lower than of late. Autumn Ladies Tresses are flowering but in reduced numbers due to the lack of rain.
