A pretty decent early autumn arrival of migrants with four Pied Flycatchers, a Grasshopper Warbler, a Garden Warbler and three Tree Pipits the pick of the bunch and numbers provided by around 100 Willow Warblers, ten Lesser Whitethroats and 65 Whitethroats. A Common Sandpiper, 120 Sand Martins and eight Yellow Wagtails also passed overhead.
Four juvenile Mediterranean Gulls were feeding at the Patch and a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull was also loafing on the beach.
A visit to the top of the Long Pits this evening where the Kent Bat Group were operating produced two Daubenton's Bats, a Nathusius's Pipistrelle and a Soprana Pipistrelle in the hand.
