An excellent fall of migrants today, with a classic selection of late August drift migrants scattered across the patch including the first Redstart, Wheatear, Whinchat and Spotted Flycatcher of the autumn. The good run of Tree Pipit and Yellow wagtail passage continued, and a late Swift flew through along with a few Sand Martin.
