22nd September 2017

A Spotted Flycatcher in the Freedown was pick of the bunch today. 2 Reed Buntings on the clifftop is a sign of the autumn progressing. On the warbler front there were 59 Chiffchaffs, 14 Blackcaps and a single Lesser Whitethroat. Yesterday's 2 Stonechats were still present at the monument while a new bird was present in the Freedown. A single Wheatear was at Hope Point while overhead there were 3 Grey and a single Yellow Wagtail. Wind - light SW.

Richard's usual evening walk around Kingsdown yielded little in the trees and bushes but about 2 500 Swallows (nearly all juveniles) were feeding over the golf course and the cliffs.
