Ned Hill track watch point

An hour watching the Causeway Foot Col this evening in muggy conditions and hazy visibility produced enough to keep me from getting bored but nothing special, the highlight being 2 Swifts.
Several non breeding LBB gulls are still around but no sign of Common or Black Headed.
A Whitethroat sang briefly before quickly dropping back into the scrub and a Wheatear flew across the goose field.
Moving through the col were :-

2 Swift.........................>N
9 LBB gulls.................>NW
8 Swallows...................>N
15 Goldfinch................>S
2 Kestrel......................bloggers
4 Meadow Pipits..........>N

Present :-
18 Woodpigeon
4 Stock Dove
1 Wheatear
1 Whitethroat
7 Linnets
2 Canada Geese
+ usual Corvids and Starlings
