September 22nd

An exceptional count of 162 Cormorant early this morning was a major increase on the counts of the previous few weeks. Aside from the Cormorants the two pools were again quiet with 3 Greylag Geese, 19 LBB Gull and 2 Grey Heron the only species of note. A few migrants passed over before the clouds rolled in, these included 25 Meadow pipit, 24 Siskin and just 1 Swallow. A total of 6 Buzzard and 1 Sparrowhawk were present around the area. Other species of note were; 2 Chiffchaff, 1 (male) Blackcap, 2+ Jay, Kingfisher, Coal tit, Bullfinch, 2 Song thrush and Green Woodpecker. The only butterflys present were Large White and 1 Small Copper, with a single Migrant Hawker being the only dragonfly.
