Today the wind was again from the south west but was very light in the morning, there was a chill to the air and a spot of rain in the evening.

The nets were opened and it was quickly evident that Goldcrest and Willow Warblers were more abundant than they have been, total day counts were 30 Goldcrest and 24 Willow Warblers. Chiffchaffs were also more numerous than they have been with 11 seen, mostly around the observatory and nant, also with a nice Reed Warbler at nant too, the second of the autumn.

The narrows again held the most numbers with 93 Turnstones, seven Ringed Plover, five Dunlin, eight Redshank, three Whimbrel, 59 Curlew and singles of Purple Sandpiper and Sanderling.
