Sunday 15th May

Counts over the high tide included 154 Oystercatcher, 96 Dunlin, 59 Sanderling, 14 Ringed Plover, 13 Whimbrel, five Curlew and a Bar-tailed Godwit. Elsewhere a Little Tern was offshore early morning with eight Sandwich and two Common Tern.

Wildlife News: A Grey Seal was again on Bull Hill and at least eight butterfly species were on the wing including Holly Blue, Red Admiral and Wall.  In Greenland Lake both Adder's-tongue and Small Adder's-tongue are now 'flowering' and the first sand wasp Ammophila sabulosa were along the Dune ridge.
