1st September 2016 Wryneck

A new month dawned sunny and bright with only the slightest westerly breeze. The settled conditions, which brought great interest on Tuesday & Wednesday, now seem to have lost their mojo for the time being. I again covered the area around the apex of the headland but also taking in Shooters Bottom where I caught up with the new Wryneck found on Tuesday.

Wryneck in Shooters this am.

Much lower numbers of migrants this morning; 10 Willow Warbler, 25 Whitethroat, 2 Lesser Whitethroat, 4 Reed Warbler, 1 Whinchat & 3 Wheatear. Overhead things were less busy then recently with only  18 Yellow Wagtail, 1 Alba Wagtail, 3 Tree Pipit and maybe c200 Hirundines moving. A silent,skulking, tailless Meadow Pipit gave me the run around in the long grass for a while.


Looking north, into Sussex from behind the pub.


Wheatear in Shooters.
