11th September

A bright and breezy day saw a fair bit of passage overhead but, Wheatears aside, it wasn't busy on the ground. A total of 78 Grey Wagtails was notable over the Bill where 400 Swallows and a Merlin were the best of the rest. The Wheatear total there was a good 150 and likely quite a bit higher what with there being such a strong throughput of them at times; another 20 Sedge Warblers continued their strong showing but there were few other worthwhile totals amongst the fair spread of grounded arrivals. The sea was quiet with the exception of 14 Balearic Shearwaters through off the Bill.
