Saturday 11th June

Counts over high tide included 172 Oystercatcher, 24 Curlew, 19 Sanderling, eight Dunlin, three Whimbrel and two Ringed Plover, with the Slavonian Grebe just north of the recording area. Elsewhere 91 Shag were feeding offshore, at least one Treecreeper reappeared in the Entrance Bushes and the similarly elusive drake Teal remains on the Main Pond.

Wildlife News: Roe Deer footprints were found on Warren Point, so yesterday's individual at Exmouth presumably made a successful crossing later in the day. Migrant insects continue to arrive with good numbers of Diamond-backed Moth and single figures of Red Admiral and Painted Lady.
