Sunday 6th May

A repeat of yesterday in terms of weather and birds. The Cuckoo was still present early morning only with a Sedge Warbler still holding territory at the Main Pond. Overhead two Yellow Wagtail, a Swift but just eight Swallow. The highlight was the first Tawny Owl of the year being harried by Blackbird and Carrion Crow in the Entrance Bushes.

Counts from the estuary included 33 Whimbrel, 22 Dunlin, five Bar-tailed Godwit, five Sanderling and two Ringed Plover whilst eight Sandwich and eight Common Tern were offshore.
