8 September 2015

Weather: SE-2, warm and sunny, some mist

Migrants continue to trickle through at the Lighthouse with a small numbers of Chiffchaff (4), Blackcap (4) and Wheatear (2) present in and around the coastal Sallows.

The recent floods have started to subside and the temporary Flashes are now vanishing. 3 of the 14 Ruff are still present along with 35 Lapwing and 11 Black tailed Godwits. The first Snipe of the autumn arrived this evening as a flock of 9 dropped into one of the sedge filled fields.

Highlight of the day goes to a Hoopoe found at New Brighton this morning by a young birder by the name of Joe Bellis - congratulations to him. The bird was quite flighty but could be viewed well with patience and distance.
