Saturday 8th August

Early morning saw a noticeable increase in activity amongst the bushes with counts of 15 Blackcap, 11 Willow and 10 Reed Warbler, 10 Whitethroat and nine Chiffchaff. With these were a couple of Sedge and a Garden Warbler but it was a Nuthatch that takes top billing. As always this species didn't linger being seen briefly at John's Watch and then on Warren Point.  The Slavonian Grebe remains in the estuary with counts included 154+ Sandwich and eight Common Tern, 379 Curlew, 92 Dunlin, 66 Ringed Plover, 26 Sanderling, five Bar and two Black-tailed Godwit. Also present a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull in Shutterton Creek and at least seven Mediterranean Gull hawking ants overhead.
