Light fall

Virtually the first bird i saw at St Marys today, was a stonking juv Little Stint along with SP Knot and Ruff, and a large supporting cast of Sanderling, Dunlin, Turnstone and Ringed Plover on the tide wrack.

Wandering round the patch 3 Whinchat, 4 Wheatear, and a Stonechat, along with Goldcrest, Chiffchaff, Blackcap, and good numbers of Mippits and Skylarks added to the feel of a light fall.

Plenty birders out and about today were soon thinned out as a female Blue-winged Teal up the coast drew some away.

Sightings by others that were notable.
Pied and Spotted flycatcher, Red-necked grebe, and a raft of 30 odd Shag at sea.
