An distinctly 'autumny' feel this morning.

Another morning for Hirundines....exclusively Sand Martins over the beach moving west in a constant stream for a couple of hours, but later, when visiting North Wall a few House Martins and an even smaller number of Swallows. Little else unusual to report. The Whimbrel remains on the Little Lagoon, Coot numbers have built up on the main Lagoon and a few Wigeon and Pintail are arriving in the harbour..but staying very much in the middle! Oh yes...several Yellow Wagtails flying west...always easier to hear than to see!
