Sunday 9th July

There is no access to the hide or Warren Point for the next couple of weeks. Mediterranean Gull continued to move through with a minimum of 43 birds today, most however flew south rather than heading into the estuary as on previous days. Also offshore two Balearic Shearwater, 99 Shag, 40 Common Scoter, 20+ Sandwich Tern and a Skua sp. In the estuary there were 76 Redshank, 24 Bar-tailed Godwit, nine Common Sandpiper, three Greenshank, three Dunlin, a Knot and the Little Ringed Plover. Elsewhere the first Wheatear of the autumn was in Greenland Lake and 15 Swift and three Sand Martin were overhead.

Wildlife News: A presumed Dark Green Fritillary was briefly around the Entrance Bushes, only the 2nd record in the last 50 years. Elsewhere good numbers of other species including the a second brood of Brown Argus.
