Saturday 30th May

Waders continue to feature but numbers were higher on the morning tide suggesting birds are moving through during the day. Counts included 240 Sanderling, continuing the good spring for this species, 79 Dunlin, 74 Ringed Plover, four Grey Plover and a Turnstone. Elsewhere a first summer Mediterranean Gull was offshore with just three Sandwich Tern and two Common Scoter.

Wildlife News: The first Cream-spot Tiger of the year was on the wing and other recent moth news included the first site record of Pammene regiana around the 'Ramalina' tree on the Dune Ridge.
