Autumn is almost upon us, and the migration is well under way. The summer breeders have now gone, but their departure marks the arrival of the autumn migrants. Soon, the island will be full of Song Thrushes, Robins, Chiffchaffs and Black Redstarts, and some waders are already making an appearance. La Gola has already recorded autumn Robins and one great little wader - the Common Sandpiper. My good friend and reserve manager Cristina regularly posts out the species seen each week on Twitter, and their autumn list is already growing.
