Very disappointing

23rd August 2011 –overcast E2
A check over the sea revealed just a few Sandwich Tern and Gannet.
Grounded Migrants
An early start with the forecast favourable weather conditions in place, however, the morning proved very disappointing with little evidence of grounded birds, just 4 Wheatear and a solitary Willow Warbler were evidence of migration.
Diurnal Migration
Again disappointing with just 3 Yellow Wagtail and a Grey Wagtail logged.
At least 8 Little Egret are now along the eastern shore.
Two migrant Dark Swordgrass and a Mullein Wave was the best that the traps could muster.
