The wind, still a bit strong, switched NW over night with a cool front passing through. There were a few birds about including the appearance of a few seasonal firsts.
The autumns first Pied Flycatcher.
I mainly covered the Hollow and Cow Gap with Bob. Good numbers of Willow Warbler (40+), a single Blackcap, 3 Reed Warbler, 25 odd Whitethroat, 1 Lesser Whitethroat, 2 Chiffchaff. 3 Nightingale were in the net runs where a Spotted Flycatcher put in a brief appearance. Both a Hobby and Sparrowhawk (I only see Sparrowhawk here spring and autumn) passed over the Hollow and an adult Cuckoo was in Cow Gap gully with a single Wheatear on the beach. Small numbers of Sand Martin and Swallow past east as did a single Swift. I also made a quick dash to catch up with a Pied Flycatcher John Cooper discovered in the old trapping area, the autumns first.
