10th September

The heat of earlier in the week has gradually been replaced by more typically autumnal conditions, with today's fresh southwesterly and heavy cloud cover not particularly beneficial migrant-wise. A small flurry of newcomers at the Bill included another Wryneck trapped at the Obs; routine arrivals were still much as they were with little further signs of, for example, Meadow Pipit passage gathering momentum. The sea was again disappointing, with 6 Balearic Shearwaters and a passing Black-tailed Godwit the best from the Bill.
