Saturday 8th June

On the late morning tide, 24 Dunlin, 23 Sanderling, eight Curlew, seven Cormorant, six Ringed Plover, four Shelduck, three Grey Plover, single Grey Heron and Little Egret, the resident Slavonian Grebe but not a single Oystercatcher again.  No sign either of the Bonaparte's Gull today on the Exmouth side.

Up to 40 Manx Shearwater flew south but little else at sea apart from a Great Crested Grebe.  A Swift and a couple of Swallow seemed to be local birds.

The highlight in the bushes was a Cuckoo, the second of the year, calling a few times from Dead Dolphin Wood as the drizzle stopped.
