3rd Sep

A quiet day with just a handful of migrants on the land including a Garden Warbler, a Redstart, three Whinchats and ten Wheatears and a trickle of birds passing overhead including 110 Swallows and ten Yellow Wagtails
Whilst there were plenty of birds offshore, mainly Sandwich Terns, there wasn't a great deal of movement with just six Arctic Skuas and six Black Terns of note.

A Bottle-nosed Dolphin was an unusual sighting along with about 20 Porpoises and two Grey Seals.

A Scarce Bordered Straw was trapped overnight and four Hummingbird Hawkmoths were feeding at the Red Valerian patch in the moat.

Five Cattle Egrets came into the roost site at ARC alongside eight Great White Egrets and 20 Little Egrets.
