Sunday 22nd July

The highlight was a near site record of Mediterranean Gull with birds present all over site, but the majority were seen in the estuary dropping in from the east. The minimum total was estimated at 72 but many more were probably missed passing offshore. Other counts in the estuary included 451 Oystercatcher, 125 Sandwich Tern, 18 Dunlin, 17 Sanderling, 16 Ringed Plover, three Common Tern, two Common Sandpiper, a Turnstone, a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull and the Slavonian Grebe.

Wildlife News: The Roesel's Bush Cricket remains in the Back Meadow.
