18th August

The first calm morning of the week saw an early morning flurry of Sedge Warblers and Willow Warblers in both the garden and the crop fields. However, the highlight of the day was the first pair of autumn Rooks overhead. Ferrybridge continued to shine with: 140 Ringed Plovers, 40 Dunlin, 17 Turnstone, five Sanderling and singles of Redshank and Sandwich Tern
