Weather: SW-1-4, cool & overcast.

A windless morning saw the arrival of 22 Wheatears in the Lighthouse paddocks. As usual with Wheatears here, they had all moved through by 08.00 to be replenished by a second wave of 12 birds at 11.00.

2 Whinchat were also in the paddocks whilst at least 14 Willow Warbler, 8 Chiffchaff and 2 Blackcap were recorded by the Lighthouse pond. A Sedge Warbler was heard singing from the nature trail reedbed.

Two Tree pipits announced their presence with their distinctive 'buzzing call' as they passed overhead.

Away from the stiffening from the breeze a male Ring Ouzel and 2 stunning male Common Redstart were found in Carr Lane.

Offshore two Surf Scoter remain among 4000 Common Scoter.
