More autumnal signs

Taken today by Janet - the bottom bird is the Czech-ringed Med Gull.  Thanks Janet

Coastal stuff south of harbour
Sandwich Tern - one adult Red Nab - first of the autumn on there
Little Gull - adult outfalls
Med Gull - juvenile outfalls
Wheatear - outfalls seawall
Eider - female by wooden jetty
Turnstone - 44 wooden jetty
Oystercatcher - 2,585 Red Nab
Black-headed Gull - 368 ad, 6 1CY Red Nab

North wall
Czech-ringed Med Gull
Wheatear sandworks

Swift - 8 south
plenty of Swallow & House Martin but seemd to be blogging

By the office (one hours ringing - wind got up)
Coal Tit - juvenile ringed - most unexpected as not thought to nest locally and early for any movement
Whitethroat - juvenile ringed
Chiffchaff - juvenile ringed
Lesser Whitethroat - at least 2 around

Mostly noctuids in the fairly strong overnight wind and highlighted by another Ear spp, Lychnis (rare here), Fen Wainscot and the first Setaceous Hebrew Character of the autumn
