At sea, at least 11 Great Northern Diver rafted were seen early morning as the mist cleared. Single-figures only of Gannet, three Common Scoter, singles only of Fulmar, Guillemot and a Common Tern, the first seen from this site since late-Apr and follows the first time in modern recording history its absence in May, saved only by sightings from the Exmouth side on 7th & 8th. Overall, it has been a remarkably poor spring here for terns.
With no scrub now remaining along Warren Neck after the failed flood defence works of 2017 and subsequent erosion, a juv Coal Tit ditched into Marram-grass but later found safer sanctuary in the patch of Sycamores on Warren Point. Just three Swallow and two House Martin passed overhead.
