24th Aug

There were a good number of migrants around again this morning although numbers were dominated by Willow Warblers with at least 100 seen. Other migrants included 25 Reed Warblers, nine Blackcaps, a very early Goldcrest, a Pied Flycatcher and a Whinchat while a Honey Buzzard, two Common Buzzards, 120 Swallows, 40 Yellow Wagtails and two Tree Pipits passed overhead.

The nocmig recorder has been out most nights and has been picking up a few waders passing over but it was very quiet last night apart from a burst of seven calls which sounds like a Dotterel.
