30th September 2018

A relatively quiet but slightly more promising end to the month, with two Jays being the standout highlight at the Gap, and 95 Tree Sparrows and 1cy Yellow-legged Gull also passing by there. A Velvet Scoter and a Mediterranean Gull moved south offshore this afternoon.

Yesterday (29th), 90 Pink-feet passed the Gap and 56 the Top Scrub, with a high count of 40 Dunnocks at the latter site. Seven Coal Tits were also there, with a small influx evident throughout the area recently; ditto, the first few Lesser Redpolls are also on the move. Six Buzzards toured the northern area early on.
