26th September

Few signs of passage picking up today with the spits and spots of rain soon after dawn dropping precious little in the way of new arrivals. A Wryneck flushed a couple of times from dense cover in the Crown Estate Field was thought most likely to be the Privet Hedge/Culverwell individual from earlier in the week, whilst the fact that the next best bird making the list was a lone Balearic Shearwater passing the Bill was a sad but accurate reflection on the poor quality of the day's events. Most areas of cover hosted a handful of Blackcaps, Chiffchaffs and Goldcrests, but further variety at the Bill included nothing much better than 2 Whinchats and singles of Common Sandpiper, Garden Warbler and Lesser Whitethroat.

Two Rusty-dot Pearl, a Rush Veneer and a Pearly Underwing were the only immigrants caught overnight in the Obs garden moth-traps.
