Another small fall

30th August 2012 – sunny spells N2/3
Observations on the rising tide provided just small numbers of Gannet, Common Scoter and Sandwich Tern.
Grounded Migrants
More grounded migrants were in evidence than has recently been the case with 20 Willow Warbler, 20 Wheatear, 4 Robin, 2 Goldcrest and single Chiffchaff, Garden Warbler and Redstart logged.
Diurnal Migration
Again some movement was evident with 60 Swallow, 10 House Martin, 4 Sand Martin and single Grey Wagtail and Tree Pipit recorded.
A poor catch yielded just 2 Large Yellow Underwing and a Lesser Yellow Underwing.
