Sunday 17th July

Counts from the estuary included 201 Sandwich Tern (at least 53 juv), 152 Redshank (including first juv), 75 Mediterranean Gull (21 ad, 50 juv, two 1s & two 2s 2), 13 Dunlin (one juv), eight Greenshank, six Whimbrel, four Bar-tailed Godwit, four Common Tern, two Knot and a Turnstone

Other records included two juvenile Yellow-legged Gull over the Bight, seven Common Scoter and two Shelduck offshore with a young Peregrine around the amusements early morning, the latter presumably attracted by the loop of continuously playing calls.

Wildlife News: Early morning out to sea at least 25+ Common and three Bottle-nosed Dolphin.
