A NW wind and overcast conditions saw a marked improvement in the birding today. Early morning before the could cleared, three Yellow Wagtails, t

hree Tree Pipits five Grey Wagtails and a Reed Bunting went over. Blackcaps ( 57) and Chiffchaffs (33) both had thier best days of the autumn so far. Other warblers included six Whitethroats, 10 Lesser Whitethroats, three Reed Warblers and a single Willow Warbler.

There were three Redstarts around the Paddock/Leas first thing and a fourth bird later at the Gun Emplacement. Spotted Flycatchers were seen at Hope Point and Otty Bottom while a Short-eared Owl was flushed from the clifftop.  Richard found the first Firecrest of the autumn.
