Saturday 7th July

Three Mediterranean Gull, two adults and a first summer, flew over the spit and upriver with 120+ Black-headed Gull feeding in the beach. Elsewhere there were just eight Sandwich Tern with several species now feeding second broods, including Whitethroat and Moorhen.

Wildlife News: A male Banded Demoiselle was briefly at the Main Pond, only the fifth site record. Elsewhere good numbers of solitary bees and wasps were on the wing with 14 species of butterfly including several Red Admiral and at least eight Ringlet, a new site high count.
