Some Examples of migrants found are:  Nightingale, Quail, Black Redstart, Ring Ouzel, Short eared Owl, Green Sandpiper, Pied Flycatcher, Red breasted Merganser and Shag.  Birds seen whilst conducting Vismig but just outside my recording area include Gannet, Hobby.  
Studies over a number of years has revealed an Urban Migration route which runs through the site.  Because of this route over the years I have recorded some fairly uncommon passage birds for an urban area.
