18th September 2014

Weather:  Wind SE f1-2

A fall of Phylloscs mostly Chiffchaff but also Willow Warblers present continued throughout the morning and was still producing new birds when observers left at 1pm.

A nice surprise was another Stonechat which was caught in the Newton Heligoland, a first year bird like yesterday's.

Two more of the Chiffchaffs caught were large birds with wing measurements 
of 66mm and weights of 8.5g & 8.1g respectively and resembled Willow Warbler in appearance.

Sightings included 3 Little Egret, Gannet, Skylark, 30 Swallow and male Peregrine.
