A few grounded migrants

Lade - 1100hrs - mild, misty, overcast e 2 - Didn`t get much time in the field today due to guests coming and going. However, on the local patch there appeared to be an overnight drop in with a scattering of Blackbirds, Song Thrushes, Mipits (35), Reed Buntings, Skylarks and four Stonechats across the shingle scrub. In the willow swamp, calling Goldcrests, Long-tailed Tits, Chiffchaffs and Robins while a couple of Kingfishers zipped over north lake.
We then had a look at the beach from the Tavern where the highlights amongst the shorebirds were 25 Knots, 30 Barwits, 10 Redshanks and six Grey Plovers, plus two Med Gulls, two Shelducks and a late Sandwich Tern.
