The wind finally swung around to the south, but still only delivered a handful of new birds. A Pied Flycatcher – lamentably only the second one this year – was probably the highlight, although eight Spotted Flycatchers, two Tree Pipits, 86 Wheatears, 31 Sedge Warblers, nine Whitethroats, two Grasshopper Warblers, three Blackcaps, nine Chiffchaffs and 15 Willow Warblers provided a passable supporting cast. 11 Ringed Plovers were on the beaches with 14 Dunlins and the Sanderling, a couple of Collared Doves were present and a Buzzard and a Kestrel were seen.
