28th September

With no change in the weather bar the wind racking up to an even more difficult blasting easterly today was not especially fruitful. A fly-by Ortolan Bunting at the Bill that didn't oblige by dropping in for general consumption provided the one moment of quality in conditions that saw to it all the day's numbers were also overhead, where hirundines, Meadow Pipits and a miscellany of wagtails and finches passed through in decent albeit unexceptional quantities. It was considerably quieter on the ground, where 2 Firecrests and a Short-eared Owl at the Bill were the only minor highlights amongst paltry numbers of commoner migrants.

The odd single Clouded Yellows and Hummingbird Hawk-moths were again reported at several sites.

Moth numbers dwindled as the wind increased, with a single Scarce Bordered Straw at the Obs the only immigrant of note.
