An evening visit found three Willow Warbler in the bushes and three Swallow over the Main Pond where the Reed Warbler remains in song but no there were other migrants. Resident breeding birds were active with Stonechat and Song Thrush collecting food and a pair of Herring Gull were nest building on the Boathouse Inn roof. The incessant tape of alarming gulls and Peregrine calls clearly bothering visitors more than the birds!
Elsewhere 19 Bar-tailed Godwit, 16 Sandwich Tern and five Whimbrel were in the estuary.
