Tuesday 29th August

The only news received was from a short afternoon visit, with the tide low the estuary was empty of waders. Two Wheatear were around the Bight and other migrants included four Chiffchaff, two Blackcap and two Reed Warbler. Elsewhere a female/imm Eider was a new arrival off Langstone Rock.

Other Wildlife: Insects were elusive with a single Emperor dragonfly and just five butterfly species recorded, but a few bright spells encouraged some activity on the emerging Michaelmas daisies including the presumed migrant Locust Blowfly in the Back Meadow.
