Redstart the highlight

5th September 2013 – overcast/calm then NW3
A quick check over the sea again produced 10 Sandwich Tern.
Grounded Migrants
Again disappointing considering the conditions with just 2 White Wagtail and single Chiffchaff, Wheatear and Redstart logged.
Diurnal Migration
Further light passage involved 30 Meadow Pipit, 20 Swallow, 10 House Martin, 5 alba Wagtail, 2 Grey Wagtail and a Sand Martin.
Wildfowl and Waders
Wildfowl continue to build with 100 Teal, 30 Wigeon, 3 Shoveler and a Pintail recorded. Waders included Greenshank and Whimbrel.
The Water Rail remains.
An unremarkable small catch included a single Silver Y.
