26th September 2021 – overcast/murky/rain clearing S2
Please note, after investigation, the report of a Blue-winged Teal received from an external source is now considered to be erroneous.
A couple of Shag were the only interest in the early morning checks over the sea.
Diurnal Migration
A flurry of activity which produced 410 Meadow Pipit, 73 Pied Wagtail, 11 Grey Wagtail, 11 Chaffinch, 7 Reed Bunting and 5 Pink-footed Geese was quickly subdued by the rain moving in.
Wildfowl and Waders
The first 2 Whooper Swan of the autumn were recorded.
A Merlin was the best of the rest.
