6th September 2010 – sunny spells/rain by evening ESE5/6/7
Grounded Migrants
The weather conditions - winds almost to gale force in gusts - were not conducive to finding grounded birds with just 20 alba Wagtail and a single Goldcrest was logged.
Wildfowl and Waders
Six Shoveler were amongst 110 Teal and waders included 17 Greenshank, 3 Curlew Sandpiper and a Black-tailed Godwit.
A further increase in the number of Little Egret around the island was noted with at least 23 birds seen.
