A good day with the barred warbler still being here, a new wryneck, 3 red kites, a whinchat, a tree pipit and a white wagtail being the highlights.
Good numbers of common migrants - 20+ goldcrests, 15 chiffchaff, 3 blackcaps and the first chaffinches of the autumn. Swallows and house martins passing through on and off all day and a small skylark and goldfinch movement first thing. 2 wheatears this evening
Good numbers of chough around with 30+ logged across the island.
