Friday 15th July
Whilst migration has been in full flow on the estuary for a few weeks, autumn has just started to arrive elsewhere on site with a single Grey Wagtail overhead and a couple of Willow Warbler and a Wheatear on site. In the estuary a Greenshank joined 38 Redshank, four Whimbrel and a Common Sandpiper all heading south with 61 Sandwich and a Common Tern, an adult summer Mediterranean Gull and the Slavonian Grebe also present. Elsewhere 14 Sanderling were along the beach and 41 Shag, 32 Common Scoter and a Great-crested Grebe were offshore.
