Thursday 21st July

A sub-adult Pomarine Skua offshore during the morning was the highlight with 42 Manx Shearwater also heading south and 36 Common Scoter and 35 Shag on the sea. Records from the estuary included the first two Kingfisher of the autumn, 167 Sandwich Tern (59 juveniles), nine Mediterranean Gull and the Slavonian Grebe, with wader counts included 489 Oystercatcher, 333 Curlew, 128 Redshank, 52 Dunlin, 28 Sanderling, 15 Whimbrel, two Greenshank and single Bar and Black-tailed Godwit. Elsewhere a Yellow Wagtail was on Wryneck Plain briefly early morning.
