Sunday 23rd May

Seawatching on three occasions through the day saw combined totals of six Pomarine and two Arctic Skua, 172 Manx Shearwater, 110 Kittiwake, 17 Fulmar and two Sandwich Tern, with three Great Northern Diver and two Great-crested Grebe on the sea. The skuas were lingering in the bay late afternoon and evening, with the Pomarine at least heading south late on. 

Late migrants included two Spotted Flycatcher at the Main Pond with three Wheatear on site. Elsewhere counts from the estuary included 16 Ringed Plover and 10 Dunlin at low tide with 100+ Sanderling along the beach. 

Wildlife news: A Common Blue was one of the few insects on the wing today.
