14.9.20 A Wryneck and 2 Osprey

A bright cloudless day with a building east wind throughout.

Not much in the way of passerines, perhaps too clear for them. I was surprised to learn Saturdays Wryneck was still present despite a busy weekend and a location choice that puts it right underneath walkers feet. It was nice to catch up with it. They’ve been very scarce here in recent autumns. The other highlight was an Osprey I picked up distantly which headed over Belle Tout lighthouse and out into the channel at 12:55 taking the same line as one seen at 11:25 by SL.

Other notables included c1500 House Martin, 2 Spotted Flycatcher, c20 Chiffchaff, c10 Common Whitethroat, 2 Hobby, c40 Siskin.
