10th September

An incredible record came in the form of 25 Bar-tailed Godwits which were seen from Hither Field as they flew southwest at 07:30. This represents the second record for the area, following one over the farm in September 2012. Three Sand Martins flew over Hither Field, where there was a Blackcap and two Chiffchaffs. A Yellow Wagtail, 15 Swallows and seven more Chiffchaffs were at the farm. Four Pied Wagtails and 60 Linnets were seen on the Legal & General grounds. The CFBW Year List now stands on 96.

A Comma and three Red Admirals were noted at the farm.
