Friday 20th July

With no change in the weather there was little change in the birds with 109 Sandwich Tern, minimum 47 juveniles, 23 Dunlin, 11 Mediterranean Gull and seven Ringed Plover in the estuary. Elsewhere a Swift, five Sand and a House Martin were overhead.

Wildlife News: The Roesel's Bush Cricket, only the third Devon record, remains in the Back Meadow with Long-winged Conehead, Great Green Bush Cricket, Meadow, Common Green and Field Grasshopper also part of the chorus. Elsewhere the first Southern Hawker of the year was around the Main Pond along with at least five Small Red-eyed Damselfly, the first reported sightings for several years.
