Sunday 10th September

A Grey Phalarope around the Bight most of the morning was the highlight with other waders including the Little Stint, 137 Ringed Plover, 60 Dunlin, six Sanderling, five Common Sandpiper, three Knot and a Whimbrel. Tern numbers increased with a mix of birds in the estuary and passing south offshore, counts included 75 Sandwich, 21 Common, eight Black and two Arctic Tern; also offshore 50+ Kittiwake, single Great and Arctic Skua.

Elsewhere 18 Mediterranean Gull was a good count, the Bonaparte's Gull was reported and overhead there were 20+ Meadow Pipit, four Grey and three Yellow Wagtail.
