2nd September 2014

Weather: light air, 35 miles visibility
Several migrants came through on a day with very little wind at all including a Blackcap, a Goldcrest, a Willow Warbler, 3 Wheatears, 15 Robins, 132 Swallows, 10 House Martins, and the first Chiffchaff of the autumn. A Magpie also paid a visit and there were 6 Little Egrets on the shore. The calm conditions encouraged the flying of a few Common Pipistrelle bats that evening and during the day were also suitable for several species of dragonfly to show themselves including an Emperor, a Common Darter, 3 Southern Hawkers and 2 Migrant Hawkers.
Ringed: 1 Chiffchaff       [ 660-34 ]
