Sunday 22nd May

At least 170 Sanderling were along the beach with 18 Curlew, 10 Whimbrel and seven Shelduck in the estuary. Elsewhere three Great Northern Diver and 10 Great-crested Grebe were offshore.

Ringing News: The year's first Sanderbling was in the flocks on the beach. It had been ringed at Asenko village in Ghana in September 2012 and has been recorded 23 times over the intervening years, but all on it's wintering grounds in Ghana, so this is the first overseas recovery. Another recovery was the first summer Curlew which was ringed as a chick in Aberdeenshire last July and has been around the Exe estuary since October was again present on Finger Point.
