Wednesday 3rd June

A couple of hours early morning tallied 57 species, an above average day list for this time of the year. Not seen here for quite some time, a blanket of cloud drifted in from the west heralding a change in the weather, but for now it remained warm and calm.  The receding early tide produced a reasonable selection of standard waders, namely 191 Oystercatcher, 42 Sanderling, 13 Bar-tailed Godwit, seven Ringed Plover, six Whimbrel, four Dunlin, three Grey Plover, two Knot, the long-staying Golden Plover and a single Curlew.

Two Stock Dove with Woodpigeon feeding on fixed dune grassland was notable.
