Sunday 9th August

Today's highlight was a Treecreeper in the Entrance Bushes but other migrants were in short supply although a couple of Swift were overhead. Counts from the estuary included 967 Oystercatcher, 305 Curlew, 117 Ringed Plover, 58 Dunlin, 17 Sanderling, four Greenshank, two Common Sandpiper and the Slavonian Grebe. Offshore an Arctic Skua was harrying some of the 174 Sandwich and seven Common Tern.

Ringing News: Three of the 117 Ringed Plover in the Bight today were colour-ringed, one each from Iceland, Norway and Germany.
