23rd September 2010

A day of rain early and squalls later on a light south westerly brought 4 Chiffchaffs to the island and a Willow Warbler and a passage of 36 Swallows, the most for some time. There are still 180 Sandwich Terns, surely they will all soon leave for warmer waters, meanwhile the Curlews are increasing for the winter and were counted at 634. On the shore were 9 Wigeon, a Little Egret and the single juvenile Brent.
