Visible migration this morning proved to be fairly quiet, but interestingly in the fine clear skies some waders were on the move. Normally the best weather at Lutley for seeing waders flying over is overcast/cloudy conditions or low cloud/drizzle. 4 Golden Plover flew over >WNW at 07.00am, followed by 4 Common Snipe also flying >WNW at 08.03am. Also the first Meadow Pipit of the autumn flew over >W.
