Tuesday 21st June

A morning tide visit produced 3-fig Oystercatcher, 72 Curlew, 21 Canada Goose, 16 Black-headed Gull, 13 Cormorant, three Shelduck two Little Egret and a Redshank; no small waders.

The elusive drake Teal was again on the Main Pond.  At sea, 45 Shag, seven Common Scoter, five Gannet, four Sandwich Tern, two Kittiwake and a distant auk sp. with chick. Overhead just five Swift, 2 Swallow and two Jackdaw.

Bizarrely, a juvenile Great Spotted Woodpecker briefly joined 149 Starling probing the ground around Greenland Lake.  Highlights in the bushes, single Coal Tit and Treecreeper; the family of Stonechat still and a Rock Pipit was on the seawall.
