September 16th (Sandwich Bay)

Low cloud and rain just to the north.Brought a big movement of hirundines over the Bay just in front of the rain.One hundred and forty nine House Martins and one Swallow were ringed.Thirty one Blackcaps,nine Chiffchaffs,2 Willow Warblers and one Spotted Flycatcher were also ringed.

The change in the weather also saw large numbers of Meadow Pipits in the area,with hundreds passing over north and a nice Red-backed Shrike was also found.
