Thursday 15th July

An Arctic Tern flew into the estuary early morning with 35 Sandwich and three Common Tern, including the first two juveniles, and the first juvenile Mediterranean Gull. Wader counts included 298 Curlew, 210 Oystercatcher, nine Whimbrel, seven Dunlin, two Ringed Plover, two Black and a Bar-tailed Godwit

Elsewhere the summer plumaged Great Northern Diver was off the seawall and a Coal Tit was in the Entrance Bushes.
