Thursday 30th May

On the evening neap high tide, 55 Ringed Plover, 54+ Sanderling, 51 Dunlin, just 13 Oystercatcher, four Great Black-backed Gull, two Little Egret and a Lesser Black-backed Gull.  The sea was very quiet with some of the ten Sandwich Tern present on site out there as the only birds of note. 

Recently fledged or nidifugous young on site today included a family of Great Spotted Woodpecker, Stonechat and Little Grebe.  Quiet overhead too with just four Swallow and two Swift.

Wildlife News: the hot sunshine brought out the invertebrates with Broad-bodied Chaser, five species of bumblebee and six butterfly species including a Red Admiral and a few Brown Argus.
