An adult Mediterranean Gull was on the beach this morning together with the usual Greenshank.
There were less migrants around today with Chiffchaffs being down to 8 and Willow Warblers, now well past their peak passage period, were down to one. 3 Blackcaps were in the Lingham Lane area. There was also a noticeable reduction in the number of hirundines passing overhead with only a few small groups of mixed Swallows and House Martins moving quickly eastward. Also passing east overhead were 4 Jays, 4 Skylarks,
There were some new arrivals, however, including an increase in Goldcrest numbers to 8. A Wheatear and a White Wagtail were at the groyne, a single Whitethroat was in Kerr's field and a Garden Warbler was at Lingham bridge. Observers; AMC, DH, CT, MGT, EW.
