North Wall: The cows were back at Halsey's Farm this morning, and with them were c30 Yellow Wagtails and a handful of Meadow Pipits, whilst the adjacent hedges held a pair of Stonechats and a couple of Blackcaps and Whitethroats.
It was quiet along the wall beyond the odd Reed Bunting and Meadow Pipit, with the Breech Pool full of water again and just holding a few Teal and Mallard, though a Kingfisher dropped in briefly a couple of times and two Avocets (that had earlier been in the harbour) flew over.
Two Greenshank were in White's Creek, along with plenty of Redshank, a couple of Golden Plovers, c20 Grey Plovers and 40 Lapwing were on the mud and there were also a Bar-tailed Godwit, c30 Black-tailed Godwits, c30 Pintail and c200 Wigeon in the harbour. (AH et al)
Otherwise, a Grey Wagtail and a Kingfisher flew through, whilst the regulars included eight Dunlin, three Black-tailed Godwits, c40 Lapwing and a dozen Teal. (AH)
Also a Song Thrush was present and 11 Brent Geese went over west at midday. (IP)
Church Norton: Up to 60 Siskins went over this morning, along with a Sand Martin, a Grey and two Pied Wagtails and a steady stream of 100+ Meadow Pipits and 200+ House Martins and Sand Martins. Other passerines were few, though, beyond a Wheatear by the concrete blocks, and a Whitethroat and three Chiffchaffs at Greenlease Farm.
Two Sandwich Terns were offshore, a Kingfisher was on the metal work, whilst the harbour held 400 Wigeon, 200 Teal, two Pintail, a Shelduck, a Bar-tailed Godwit, six Grey Plovers and c30 Dunlin. (S&SaH/IP)
Medmerry Trail to Porthole Farm: A Short-eared Owl was flushed from by the trail path early this morning and flew into Ferry Field.
Later there were a selection of warblers in the sheltered bits of hedge, including a Lesser Whitethroat, a couple of Blackcaps, up to ten Whitethroats and at least 20 Chiffchaffs, along with a dozen Yellowhammers and Linnets, the odd Goldcrest and several Jays.
There were a couple of hundred Swallows and House Martins over the sewage works and fields early on, with a dozen Yellow Wagtails, four Meadow Pipits and two Grey Wagtails also moving about. (A&YF/AH)
The four Curlew Sandpipers were still in the channel along with over a hundred Wigeon later on. Also, twenty Siskins went over and there were about ten Chiffchaffs and two Sedge Warblers in the reeds along with five Cetti’s Warblers, whist in amongst the cows in the most western fields there were four Cattle Egrets.
