5th October

A good turn out of birders but unfortunately the birds hadn't read the script. All in all a disappointing day although one or two interesting records including a single Goosander flying down channel, two late Yellow Wagtails, 11 Rock Pipits  and a Redpoll overhead, a Common Treecreeper, 15 Stonechats and a Wheatear. Yesterday's Cetti's Warbler was still present at Hope Point but Chiffchaffs (26) and Blackcaps (9) were well down. There were a further 20 Chiffs and 35 Blackcaps at the Kingsdown end of the recording area. Goldcrests increased to 25 and two Firecrests were encountered.

15 Stonechats seen today including 12 on clifftop between Hope Point & the Monument (BR)
