Thursday 19th May

A second summer Glaucous Gull was off John's Watch late afternoon, feeding behind a trawler with other gulls before heading off back into Lyme Bay, also offshore 14 Sandwich Tern, four Common Scoter and three Manx Shearwater. Counts over the high tide showed the regular late May movement of Sanderling with 144 on the beach, whilst in the estuary there were 33 Dunlin, 12 Curlew, five Whimbrel, three Ringed Plover and two Bar-tailed Godwit. Elsewhere a female Cuckoo around the Main Pond and Greenland Lake was an unexpected migrant and the first twitchable individual on site in three years.
