Friday 3rd September

Seven Balearic Shearwater were lingering the bay early morning with 19 Sandwich and four Common Tern also offshore. Elsewhere 21 Sanderling and nine Bar-tailed Godwit on the beach, a Whitethroat on site and a Grey Wagtail overhead.

Wildlife News: A total of 17 hoverfly species were recorded but the dipteran highlight was an Ectophasia crassipennis, a tachinid fly that parasitises shieldbugs. This species was first recorded in the UK in 2019 and this is the first Warren record.
