Weather: SE-2 warm and sunny. 12th September Bird News
A slow start early morning saw only a single Willow Warbler and two Chiffchaff moving through whilst a single Blackcap was in the Nature Trail. As is the case at the Lighthouse things began to improve around lunchtime and by mid afternoon our day totals had improved significantly to include Blackcap (6), Lesser Whitethroat (1), Willow Warbler (3), Chiffchaff (9), Goldcrest (7) and Wheatear (7). Overhaead passage included Jackdaw (8), Grey Wagtail (6) and Meadow Pipit (45) all moving South East. Highlight of the day was our second Hobby of the autumn. Unlike our last one it didn't stick around and shot through quickly continuing its southward migration.
