Saturday 5th June

A summer-plumaged Great Northern Diver was close in offshore with six Common Scoter and four Sandwich Tern. Elsewhere the single Sedge Warbler and Lesser Whitethroat continue to advertise for a mate, a Kestrel from a nest at Eastdon was hunting over the Golf Course, a Curlew was in the estuary and a lone Meadow Pipit was overhead.

Wildlife News: No less than four notable plant rediscoveries today with Lesser Stitchwort and Smooth Tare found after over 30 years absence and Grass Vetchling and Dodder after an absence of over 15 years, all found on the Golf Course, also on the course over 120 spikes of Southern Marsh Orchid. The first Broad-bodied Chaser and Cinnabar moths of the year were on the wing along with several White-clubbed Hoverfly Scaeva pyrastri and Common Blue butterflies.
