Our walk at Chamber's Wall this morning began in sunshine but clouded over half way through and prompted a westerly movement of Swifts. We counted 227 flying W in 30 minutes.
Other birds seen included 3 Whitethroats, 7 Little Egrets, 3 Yellow Wagtails, 8 Oystercatchers, 1 immature male Eider, 9 Turnstone, 8 Ringed Plovers, 1 Common Sandpiper, 2 Grey Herons, 10 Cormorants, 1 Common Tern, 1 Corn Bunting, 1 Whimbrel, 1 Redshank, 6 Swallows W and 1 Turtle Dove.
We also found 6 Clouded Yellows.
Bob Hinge cycled along the seawall this evening and counted 12 Oystercatchers, 1 Whimbrel, 1 Ringed Plover, 1 Turnstone, 2 summer plumaged Dunlin at Coldharbour, 1 Little Owl, 7 Yellow Wagtails and an early returning Wheatear.
