Saturday 18th July
Two redhead Goosander in front of the hide were part of an increasing and unexpected July pattern of occurrences. More anticipated though is the summer build up of feeding terns with 185+ Sandwich and three Common Tern present alongside three Mediterranean and a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull. Also in the estuary the Slavonian Grebe, 38 Dunlin, 10 Whimbrel, nine Sanderling, two Knot and a Turnstone. Elsewhere two Sand Martin flew through with 40 Common Scoter and 21 Manx Shearwater offshore.
