Our walk around Seaton Point tonight was very pleasant, calm and mild in the setting sun.

In the weedy field corner the migrants were taking the last of the rays with Whinchat, 3 Willow Warblers, a Blackcap, 3 Wheatears and a nice male Redstart. It showed some of the characters of the samamisicus race, with a white wing flash like a Black Redstart and a good white gorget below its black mask. A very smart bird. A female was near the car and a male Sparrowhawk dashed through.

The village still had 2 Pied Flycatchers and a Spotted Flycatcher.

On the Mere, 1 Black tailed Godwit was the highlight.
