Friday 9th September

A Little Stint was in the Bight on the evening tide amongst c80 Ringed Plover and c60 Dunlin, with 237 Wigeon, 54 Great Black-backed Gull, 38 Bar and 24 Black-tailed Godwit, 18 Sanderling, 12 Greenshank and single Kingfisher, Knot, Whimbrel and Spotted Redshank. The hybrid Wigeon x Pintail was again present.

Off John's Watch at least 47 Balearic Shearwater were feeding close offshore with large numbers of gulls, including 950 Black-headed, two adult Mediterranean and two first winter Yellow-legged Gull as well as 24 Sandwich and a Common Tern.

Elsewhere a Hobby was over the Entrance Bushes. 

Wildlife News: A Red Admiral was watched flying in off the sea and a further influx of Rush Veneer saw at least 30 kicked up underfoot.
