7th September 2016

A much quieter day, with a very light variable and continuing warm temperatures offering little new of note. Visible migration was minimal at best, while the sea offered few signs of movement; the Dams kept things interesting, however, with the Curlew Sandpiper and the Pintail in situ, seven Ruff, eight Dunlin, two Green Sandpipers, 35 Lapwings, two Little Egrets and five Snipe present today. A Whinchat and two Lesser Whitethroats at Muston Sands this evening were among a small scattering of passerine migrants.
