Monday 10th August

Heavy showers in the morning brought only temporary relief from the high humidity and temperatures. Coinciding with the tide, may have been responsible for bringing down some  waders with increased counts in The Bight of 144 Ringed Plover and 126 Dunlin. Another Wood Sandpiper (the site's 42nd record) was again present only briefly. A meagre 15 Sandwich Tern and two adult Little Tern also.

An evening walk around wooded areas saw a mixed flock pass through that contained 12 Blue Tit, nine Long-tailed Tit, two Great Tit and single figures of Chiffchaff. Up to four Willow Warbler and a few Blackcap, a juvenile Bullfinch and a Sparrowhawk were also present.
