The good run continues.

Weather: SE-3-4, sunny spells and squally showers.

Migration continues to hot up at the Lighthouse with good numbers of Yellow Wagtail starting to build. Whilst birds move through here all day a flock of at least 12 birds were found mid afternoon. Within the flock a smart looking 'Channel' Wagtail Motacilla flava flava x flavissima was found catching insects amongst the daisies. Thought initially to be Blue headed, however the pale throat, pale cheeks and very pale powder blue head suggest this bird is a Channel Wagtail.

Other migrants today included 1 Redstart, 2 Whinchat, 15 Wheatear, 3 Garden warbler and numerous Blackcap, Whitethroat, and Chiffchaff.

At 20.10 the Night Heron flew into the river Birkett from it's daytime roost appearing to drop onto the river somewhere west of Lingham Bridge..
