Not a day for passerines

10th September 2010 – rain SW3/4
Grounded Migrants
Very slim pickings with just small numbers of Chiffchaff and Robin logged.
Wildfowl and Waders
Shelduck and Wigeon numbers are beginning to build with 60 of the latter logged. Six Shoveler remain and waders continue to provide reward with 35 Greenshank, 3 Black-tailed Godwit, 3 Curlew Sandpiper and the lingering juvenile Little Stint logged amongst good numbers of Redshank.
At least six colour-ringed Little Egret are now present on the island.
