Marsh Harrier moves through

18th September 2008 - overcast/murky SW1
Diurnal Migration
A juvenile Marsh Harrier flew through and passerines on the move included 650 Meadow Pipit, 70 Swallow and 7 Grey Wagtail.
Grounded Migrants
Although 6 Whinchat were logged the supporting cast remained very thin on the ground with just 7 Goldcrest and 3 Chiffchaff of any note.
Wildfowl and Waders
A Black-tailed Godwit provided the only interest.
At least 20 Little Egret remain and both Water Rail and Kingfisher put in another appearance.
