What I got instead was typically routine. A Common Sandpiper flirted around the periphery of No.5, with three on East Warwick. Around 70+ Common Swift wheeled above No.4 and No.5, perhaps the last few days before they leave our shores for another year. A dozen Sand Martin were also present. Six juvenile Shelduck appeared to have earned their wings feeling the freedom of flight with the adults. Two Grey Wagtails were active around No.5.
