11th September

Sadly, today was but a shadow of what anticipation and a south-easterly had suggested it might be, with a lot of legwork coming up with precious few rewards beyond the mundane. Numbers on the ground were particularly disappointing, with only Yellow Wagtail, Wheatear, Whinchat, Blackcap and Willow Warbler getting into double figures at the Bill; it was a tad busier overhead although, hirundines aside, it was only really the continuing flow of Siskins - including another 120 over the Bill - that saw the tally reach respectable proportions. Odds and ends through on the sea included 7 Balearic Shearwaters and 3 Arctic Skuas off the Bill.

We've run out of time this evening to post any of the nice selection of migrant photos passed to us today - they'll feature tomorrow.
