Migration Time.

16th Sep

A calm, overcast morning resulted in another small arrival of migrants with 80 Chiffchaffs and 25 Blackcaps present. A Garden Warbler, four Goldcrests, a Whinchat and six Wheatears were also of interest. Birds passing overhead during the morning included three Buzzards, five Yellow Wagtails and two Grey Wagtails.
The sea was very quiet although a sudden huge influx of "anting" gulls in the late afternoon included 1000 Mediterranean Gulls. Four Arctic Skuas flew east and a Little Tern was also feeding offshore.

Six Porpoises were seen offshore.

A Scarce Bordered Straw was caught overnight.
