A party of 6 Ruff dropped out of the sky at 8am off farborough spit and searched along the north shore of toft bay and toft shallows before deciding that there was nowhere suitable and flew off east down the dunsmore gap in to Northamptonshire. Very cool blustery conditions this morning which made viewing difficult but we managed Dunlin, 15 Common Tern and 7 Little Egret which included 5 together roosting in one tree, 20 Swift 400+ House Martin, 50 Sand Martin, 6 Yellow Wagtail and our first returning Meadow Pipit of the autumn.

With rain threatening we worked Napton on the Hill managing one Redstart, Willow Warbler, 4 Spotted Flycatcher, Raven, 3 Buzzard and a Peregrine. Plenty of hirundine feeding overhead. Two Yellow-legged Gulls flew over Sainsbury’s early afternoon.
