14th September

 It was already shorts and T shirt weather at sunrise this morning with clear skies and a light ESE wind. These conditions saw some viz mig early on with at least 1,200 Swallows and 900 House Martins moving out into the channel in the first hour. Other birds moving in the first couple of hours included  60 Meadow Pipits, three Tree Pipits, four Grey Wagtails, two alba Wagtails and two Yellow Wagtails. 

Meanwhile the audible migration continued again this morning with a steady stream of mostly unseen Siskins going north. 

There was little change on the deck with 94 Chiffchaffs, 47 Blackcaps, four Lesser Whitethroats, two Common Whitethroats and a single Reed Warbler. Six Stonechats and a single Whinchat were the only other birds of note
