26th September 2016

Weather: SE-2, warm and sunny

A mixed day with minimal vis mig despite ideal condition but a few grounded migrants could be found in the coastal sallows.

Grounded migrants included Stonechat (2), Wheatear (3) Chiffchaff (15) Blackcap (4), Swallow (11) and a Jay , however highlight of the day was a Nuthatch. Nuthatch is a very rare bird here with less than 5 records for the Lighthouse area.

A Kingfisher has also been seen with some regularity from Linngham bridge. One lucky observer managed to capture this portrait of a bird seen near the Lighthouse pond.
