Saturday 29th July

Work is progressing on the Dune Ridge, but there remains no access to the hide or Warren Point. Seawatching early morning was quiet but 27 Common Tern flew south early morning with another nine south late afternoon, along with a single Arctic Skua. In the estuary a brief Roseate Tern was with a few Common and 80 Sandwich Tern, the Slavonian Grebe was off Cockwood and wader counts included the first three Black-tailed Godwit of the autumn, 454 Curlew, 140 Redshank, 66 Dunlin, 36 Bar-tailed Godwit, 27 Whimbrel, 24 Ringed Plover, eight Sanderling and two Greenshank. Elsewhere a single Wheatear was in Greenland Lake and 22 Shelduck flew in off into the estuary.
