A great day of migration started with a male Ring Ouzel which was found on the east side and moved towards Middle Eye, and continued during the morning with a large arrival of Wheatears (57 logged) and passage of Meadow Pipits (330), also many hirundines, including 125 Swallows and 69 Sand Martins, but no House Martins. Warblers were less impressive today, with just 3 Chiffchaffs and 2 Goldcrests on the ground. Other small migrants today were 5 White and 4 Pied Wagtails, 3 Goldfinches and 4 Siskins, while a Woodpigeon was less expected. Also visiting today were 2 Canada and 3 Greylag geese.
