1.9.20 and 30.8.20

A bright morning with scattered cloud. A light east wind.

A much quieter day today although still some interest around. I covered most sites from the pub to Birling. There was a steady stream of Swallows and Martins that continued into late morning probably numbering several thousand birds (75% Swallow, 23% Sand Martin and 2% House Martin), 1 Golden Plover over, 7 Common Redstart, 4 Whinchat, 1 Wheatear, 6 Chiffchaff, 20 Common Whitethroat, 2 Lesser Whitethroat, 10 Blackcap. A Red Kite drifted over mid morning. Another look late afternoon proved very quiet with 4 Swift being the sole highlight.

31.8.20 the last day of August proved to be quite good with a decent arrival of birds over night. Highlights included 8+ Pied Flycatcher, 3 Spotted Flycatcher, 6 Redstart, Merlin, Hobby, 3 Short eared Owls whilst RHC had a Wood Warbler at Hodcombe.
