A bit too clear with the cloud rather high

Ok for a bit of vis this morning but, once again, not for grounding night migrants

Havn't got the vis figures to hand, but they will be entered later with nothing out of the ordinary. 5 more Grey Wagtail were colour-ringed this morning. Vis 0630-1030: Meadow Pipit 20, Swallow 10, House Martin 8, alba wagtail 5

Ocean Edge on late afternoon tide
Med Gull - 2 adults on Red Nab, one appeared to be darvic-ringed but not seen clearly
4+ White Wagtail with several Pied Wagtails on/around football pitch

Pink-barred Sallow made its first appearance of the autumn

Single Little Stint & 2 Curlew Sandpiper on the EM Pool yesterday afternoon
