13th September 2009

A very disappointing day for the middle of September with light winds and some mist on the coast. No new migrants, but a Whitethroat (right) from last Tuesday was still present. Again a very small filter through of Swallows and a single Wheatear on the main island with 2 more on Middle. A Dunnock was by the McAfee buildings, possibly the same bird as Friday.

Two Wigeon continued the sequence of records of these ducks in recent days.
Early morning saw the unusual spectacle of a Raven (left) on the marine lake car park with the pigeons, it then flew over the sand and landed on a tall conifer in one of the gardens alongside the beach.
