Wednesday 22nd May 2013

An unexpected highlight was a summer plumaged TEMMINCK'S STINT on the beach early evening. This is only the third site record and the first for 21 years! Also on the beach c100 Dunlin, 49 Ringed Plover and 30+ Sanderling. Elsewhere two Turtle Dove along the Dune Ridge before appearing to land in the Entrance Bushes were almost as unexpected, the first for two years and the first multiple record since 2004. In the morning at least one Roseate Tern and three Great Northern Diver were offshore.
