Monday 16th July

Tern numbers are at last starting to build with at least 78 Sandwich and a Little Tern around the Bight at high tide this morning. Also in the estuary at least nine Mediterranean Gull (five juvs, three ads & a first summer), 365+ Curlew, just three Dunlin and the Slavonian Grebe. Elsewhere three Sand Martin and a juvenile Willow Warbler were heading south and a female Eider was offshore.

Wildlife News: A Golden-ringed Dragonfly was in the Entrance Bushes and at least half a dozen Silver Y were disturbed from grassland. Late news from 5th July; the 3rd site record of Locust Blowfly Stomorhina lunata a rare North African migrant.
