Wednesday 20th May

A fortnight has passed since it last rained and high pressure still dominates, thought it was less warm today.  A complete species list of 53 species today was about on par in the context of recent years for this time of the year.  Both tides were covered, 208 Oystercatcher, 105 Sanderling, 25 Ringed Plover, 18 Dunlin, seven Whimbrel, a few Curlew, six Great Black-backed Gull, two Little Egret, a Common Gull and the Slavonian Grebe.

Offshore, rafts of foraging flocks of 520 Herring Gull and two distant Sandwich Tern.  Apart from a Green Woodpecker, the bushes and dunes held only usual species.
