The first Tree Pipit of the year headed north mid morning with the second Osprey soon after, but migrants were otherwise thin on the ground and overhead with a single Willow Warbler and five Whimbrel and three Swallow respectively.
Elsewhere no small waders over the high tide but 25 Sandwich Tern and a lone Dark-bellied Brent Goose in the estuary and two Great Northern Diver offshore, both moulting into breeding plumage.
Wildlife News: A male Vagrant Emperor was found quartering the dune slope, eventually landing long enough for a few photos. The seventh site record for this increasing species, with the first as recently as May 2017.
A single Peacock was the only butterfly recorded but new emergences for the year included Gwynne's Mining Bee Andrena bicolor and the sawfly Aglaostigma aucupariae.
