North winds at the point

Migrant Hawker ?
With strong north winds the birds were thin on the ground and most of those seen were over head calling. Best of the bunch were 2 Bearded Tits briefly in the trapping area (The only place with slightly less wind) and 2 over flying Ravens.
There were 3 Ring Ouzels in the scrub and 2 Brambling,18 Siskin, 9 Redpoll,1 G.S.Woodpecker,100+ Swallows,21 Stock Doves, 100+ Wood Pigeon,3 Sparrowhawk,28 Goldfinch, and 3 Skylark. Inthe bushes were 20+ Robins, 7 Chiffchaffs, 2 Goldcrests,1 Reed Warbler and 4 Green Woodpeckers. On the beach were 2 Yellow-legged Gulls and a House Martin Over.
Nearby at the ARC Pit  of note were 2 Avocet, 2 Marsh Harriers and 4 Cetti's Warbler heard with a few dragonflies in the more sheltered spots.
