Redstart Day

13th September
Another foray to Seasalter seafront finding 2 Sandwich terns, a new tick for the month and inland much the same as before with several stonechats (2 families), 2 blackcaps, lesser whitethroat plus 4 commons, blue and great tits, 1 chiffchaff but no whinchat, however, a nice redstart as I left - quite busy with birds this morning.  I moved up to the Sportsman seeing my first lapwing this month on the field opposite along with a big flock of curlew. Overhead two hobbys were hunting together (another month tick) and around the huts c.10 mipits and c.70 linnets and on the access track 2 blackcaps, 1 lesser whitethroat and a redstart.
