A slight reduction in the strong SW wind which allowed a few more nocturnal migrants to move around than the previous two days.

A surprising amount of birds in less windy conditions this morning. Highlights being 2 Redstart, c30 Willow Warbler, c60 Yellow Wagtail most of which were around the feet of the cattle along the Cornish Farm track.

23rd: Strong SW wind. The only thing of note was a Hobby chasing a small number of Sand Martin over Cornish Farm.

22nd: Strong SW. A Pied Flycatcher and a Redstart at Belle Tout on a very windy day.

21st: light/moderate SW and warm. The first day where a congregation of autumn hirundines was apparent over the headland with at least c100 Swallow and c50 Sand Martin around the top fields behind the pub, they were also joined by c50 Swift.
