A wander around the hayfields lunch time did not produce much, even though they look excellent for waders. 3 Whimbrel dropped in, 2 Ravens flew over as did a Peregrine, several Bearded Tits were calling from the reeds along with Reed and Sedge Warblers but sadly no sign of the Black-winged Stilts.

 As I stretched my legs this afternoon after spending a couple of hours sitting in front the sea watch hide, I noticed DW waving to me from beside the lighthouse garden. I quickly made my way there and heard then saw a Yellow Browed Warbler. A strange occurrence as The Point was more or less bereft of migrants, though a Chiffchaff was keeping it company.
