11th Aug

There was a large arrival of migrants this morning but unfortunately for ringing purposes it was almost all around the Long Pits. The highlights were a Grasshopper Warbler near the Pumphouse and a Spotted Flycatcher at the top end while numbers were provided by 100 Willow Warblers, six Sedge Warblers, 25 Reed Warblers, four Garden Warblers and 120 Whitethroats.
The sea was very quiet with just a lingering juvenile Yellow-legged Gull of note.
