Friday 16th August

A wet and windy day but seawatching was disappointing with just four Manx Shearwater far enough into the bay to identify but 110 Kittiwake and 20 Gannet did also pass south. The conditions did however bring good numbers of terns to the estuary the highlight being a juvenile Roseate Tern along with 270 Sandwich, 94 Common, two Arctic and a juvenile Little Tern. Wader counts included 302 Dunlin, 170 Ringed Plover, 15 Knot, eight Greenshank and four Grey Plover, including three smart summer plumaged birds.
