8th Sept

Another quiet day for common migrants with just singles of Whinchat and Pied Flycatcher of note in the bushes but some good visible migration with two notable birds in the form of Montagu's Harrier and Honey Buzzard. Good numbers of Swallows also passed through along with a Hobby, 75 Yellow Wagtails, nine Grey Wagtails and a Tree Pipit.
Offshore, seven Arctic Skuas flew east whilst a Pintail and three Wigeon passing west were new for the autumn along with 13 Bar-tailed Godwits, a Mediterranean Gull and a Black Tern.

Two Sickle-bearing Bush Crickets were found but they seem to be getting harder to locate now.

A Hummingbird Hawkmoth, a Gem and 50 Silver Y's were the highlights of a busy moth trap.
