Saturday 4th June

Wader counts saw a continuing passage with 22 Sanderling, 14 Turnstone and 10 Dunlin presumably still heading northward whilst the 13 Curlew (including the same yellow-ringed bird), four Ringed Plover, two Whimbrel and single Bar-tailed Godwit may be summering along with the 200 Oystercatcher. Elsewhere 18 Sandwich Tern were feeding offshore with 41 Shag, 40 Kittiwake and two Great-crested Grebe, at least two Cuckoo were on Warren Point and 33 Swift were overhead.

Wildlife News: A Bank Vole clambered about brambles near the First Pond and an Emperor dragonfly quartered the dune ridge. Stranded Barrel Jelly-fish continue to increase in number along the beaches.
