12th August

A small arrival of Willow Warblers was evident this morning with 32 counted, mostly around the Paddock. 2 Reed Warblers were enticed out from cover at Hope Point. Other warbler numbers included 24 Whitethroats, nine Lesser Whitethroats, nine Blackcaps plus a single Chiffchaff.

Overhead 19 Swifts flew down channel over the sea and Greenshank and Green Sandpiper were heard but not seen. Three Yellow Wagtails and a Tree Pipit went SW.

The Whinchat was still along the clifftop along with four Wheatears


Whinchat on clifftop. Present for 8th day, assuming that it is the same bird

Wheatears increased to four on the clifftop 

Yellowhammers seem to be everywhere this autumn
