Sunny and warm out of the stiff NNW breeze. Overhead 18 Swift, 41 Swallow and 11 House Martin with randomness thrown in by a pair of Bar-headed Goose and a pair of Red-breasted Merganser, in off and flew N. A fs Mediterranean Gull flew N and a ss Yellow-legged Gull flew NE to Exmouth.
The lunchtime neap tide only produced 40 Sanderling, 17 Dunlin and 10 Ringed Plover. The bushes were v quiet with 2+ Spotted Flycatcher the only interest, but with a 1000+ (!!) at Portland Bill, the site was a little short-changed.
17 Sandwich Tern in small groups in off were the only interest at sea.
