A quick visit to Tuti

I made a quick visit to Tuti yesterday morning for a couple of hours. There were still a few migrants about, but fewer than there had been in the previous two visits. Somehow I had expected there to be a solid stream of migrants throughout the autumn migration. There were no obvious changes in weather conditions, but maybe changes further north affect their movements. I will have to start checking the forecasts to see if any pattern emerges.

The only birds I had not seen before were Yellow-billed (Intermediate) Egret, a couple of White-faced Whistling Ducks and a Common Redshank. I will be out again this weekend to see if things have picked up again.
