Sunday 30th August 2015

A humid and still day, the best sightings being a Short-eared Owl hunting near the sea wall at Thornham early morning, and a Great Skua drifting past the Broadwater before landing on the pools. Over 100 Black-tailed Godwits flew through east and 2 Whimbrel were calling, with at least 3 Yellow Wagtails also passing over and 3 Whinchats on the fence along the river Hun. A Kingfisher was also seen, and a Garden Warbler was ringed together with Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff, Blackcap, Sedge and Reed Warbler, Whitethroat and Cetti's Warbler.
