With overnight rain and calm conditions in the morning there was a nice little arrival of migrants with 13 Spotted Flycatchers and six (new) Reed Warblers of note and more rarities in the form of another flying west over the observatory at 0830hrs and a Nightjar heard briefly during the morning and again at dusk.
The tern movement also continued offshore with another 1010 Common Terns through in three hours of watching along with a Manx Shearwater, an Avocet, 30 Dunlin, a Little Gull and eight Little Terns.
