Monday 22nd August

Counts from the afternoon tide included 280 Curlew, 86 Ringed Plover, 73 Sandwich and 15 Common Tern, 41 Mute Swan, 38 Great Black-backed Gull, 20 Whimbrel, 14 Dunlin, nine Bar and a Black-tailed Godwit, eight Greenshank, six Sanderling, six Mediterranean and a first winter Yellow-legged Gull. Small flocks of waders regularly flew south having circled and gained height as the tide dropped.

Elsewhere a Reed Warbler in Dead Dolphin Wood was the pick of the migrants, but may have only travelled from the Main Pond. 

Wildlife News: Still good numbers of Rush Veneer in the grasslands with another 25+ recorded.
