It felt like autumn was truly here this morning as the south easterly wind was quite cool, but there was no noticeable improvement in the arrival of birds. Single Chiffchaff, Goldcrest and Wheatear gave some hope of better things arouind the island but little else was forthcoming. About 15 Swallows were feeding furiously over the island for a while, a few Pied Wagtails went through and there seemed to be at least 7 Robins ticking regularly about the island, otherwise all was quiet.

Late news from the afternoon tide was of a Great White Egret flying south west across Middle Eye.
Ringed: 1 Goldcrest, 1 Linnet, 1 Meadow Pipit [ 387-28 ]
