Sunday 27th May

The weather promised much but failed to deliver with an almost total lack of new arrivals. Wader counts over high tide included 91 Dunlin, 40 Sanderling, 27 Ringed Plover, 25 Black and 11 Bar-tailed Godwit, 17 Curlew, three Whimbrel, three Turnstone, two Knot and two Grey Plover; with the Slavonian Grebe, four Sandwich and a Common Tern also in the estuary.

Wildlife News: Increasing numbers of Marmalade Hoverfly were on site today, a sign of continuing immigration.
