27th August

A little more interest on the migrant front today with an overdue first Wryneck of the season the best of the arrivals at the Bill; a Marsh Harrier also left to the south from the Bill, 2 Little Stints were new in at Ferrybridge and flurry of Crossbills saw 7 head overhead at High Angle Battery and 5 arrive at the Bill. Numbers and variety were otherwise much as yesterday, with 2 Greenshanks, a Redshank and a Snipe at the Bill of note amongst the seasonable spread everywhere.
