Weather: NW-3, mild and overcast.

With the wind having been in the Northwest quarter for some time now there has been little in the way of migration; however today saw a small movement of Swift. Nine in total all heading south to their East African wintering grounds. Other migrants included a Wheatear on the Groyne where the ever present Greenshank remains.

Other birds of note today included a Black tailed Godwit over the shore whilst a secretive Kingfisher was seen to fly along the Birkett from Lingham bridge.

Several young Reed Warbler could also be found around the Lighthouse pond.
