Migration Time.

31st August


A quiet end to the month. The best of the birds on the land were three Marsh Harriers, a Common Sandpiper, 580 Swallows, 11 Chiffchaffs, a Pied Flycatcher, three Whinchats, a Grey Wagtail and a Tree Pipit. At sea, two Tufted Ducks, 30 Knot, six Mediterranean Gulls, two Black Terns and two Arctic Skuas were seen during three hours of watching.

Six Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.

Another evening visit for orthoptera produced five Sickle-bearing Bush-crickets and an excellent chorus from the Tree Crickets.
