Got down to Marshside for an hour or two today, with squadrons of Pinkies droppin' in from all points of the compass, and over 300 with the ferals on Marshside Two.
Good numbers of Snipe too, as you would expect at this time of the year, a young Peregrine (quite a dark bird) freaking out the Lapwings and Starling, plus Merlin and Kestrel.
Vis mig in the Sandplant, despite the fact work was goin' on again, included 4 Grey Wags, 6 Long Tailed Tit, 2 Blackbirds, Mipits, Linnet and Goldfinch.
The arrival of a Highland Coo on the Junction Pool was further evidence of movement from the north.
Plenty of Migrant Hawkers, a few Red Admiral, Painted Lady and even a Small Torty-shell.
Greenshank calling around M2 and 8 Little Egrets on Crossens Outer...the "big fella" was on the other side of the estuary while I was down.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
