Wednesday 26th June

The Slavonian Grebe remains the highlight of the quiet midsummer period with two Mediterranean Gull, first & second summers, and five Sandwich Tern also in the estuary. Elsewhere a Common Scoter and 27 Shag were offshore, two small broods of Mallard remain on the Main Pond and 23 Swift flew through.

Wildlife News: A single Marbled White was on the wing with 10 Painted Lady, a Large and several Small Skipper, Common Blue, Small White and Meadow Brown. A new species for site was Leopard Slug with a pair found under log in educational area, another common and widespread species previously overlooked or unreported.
