The mid-morning high tide pushed in 228 Oystercatcher, 40 Sanderling, four Great Black-backed Gull and single Ringed Plover and Dunlin. The resident Slavonian Grebe and a new 2s (3cy) Mediterranean Gull were in the estuary.
A Cuckoo and two Raven were on Warren Point.
Wildlife news: Variable Longhorn Beetle Stenocorus meridianus was a new species for the site. A cluster of 16 Pyramidal Orchid spikes were flowering on Warren Point. Regular butterflies Small Skipper, Meadow Brown and Speckled Wood were seen. Aptly named, drabness of adult Dingy Flat-body Depressaria radiella, isn't shared by its showy features at the larval stage, and close inspection of Hemock Water-dropwort heads found one of these today.
