The overcast conditions overnight produced the first notable arrival of migrants of the autumn, in which Grasshopper Warbler and Sedge Warbler were clearly the most numerous species, whilst a Nightingale was the main highlight. Other early migrants were thin on the ground with only small numbers of Garden Warbler and Willow Warbler present.

Other sightings included 8 Green Sandpiper, 2 Ruff and 3 Garganey on the scrape.
