Thursday 3rd June

A largely migrant free day with typical summer fare of recently fledged birds, although in lower numbers that might be expected. In the estuary 12 Sanderling, nine Dunlin and a Bar-tailed Godwit.

Wildlife News: In contrast to the birds migration was very much to the fore with thousands of Marmalade Hoverfly across the site, along with other migrant species such as c100 Long Hoverfly Sphaerophoria scripta, 10+ Common-spotted Field Syrph Eupeodes luniger at least five White-clubbed Hoverfly Scaeva pyrastri, two Painted Lady, five Silver Y and several Diamond-back Moth.
