Before work and after work around the garden (like a teddy bear...) a few things of note -

While feeding the birds this morning 8 Golden Plover flew south over head calling, my first of the autumn here.
This evening sat outside it was very pleasant, I might try the moth trap for a while later...
Yellow Wagtail 1 heard over head but unseen.
Sand Martin 1 S, was quite late.
Grey Wagtail 1 over.
Sparrowhawk 1 hunting our garden both morning and afternoon.
Kestrel 1 still in the wood. The young seem to have dispersed.
Buzzard 1 heard mewing in the top pines then a Jay was heard screeching.
Great spotted Woodpecker 1 juv hopping up the stone gable end of Julies house pulling the sand cement out!
House Martin 1 over.
Sandwich Tern 4 S from coast path as well as...
Oystercatcher 8
Redshank 3
Common Sandpiper 1.

Here is a scan of my notes from last night when I got home...
