Tuesday 27th June

The low high tide meant there was little to see in the estuary with just five Dunlin in the Bight and three Sandwich Tern offshore The immature male Eider was off Langstone Rock and a Tawny Owl was calling from the Entrance Bushes overnight.

Wildlife News: The overcast but still warm conditions meant insects were still on the wing but less active allowing close approach. Bee-wolf numbers continue to increase with a Small Shaggy Bee Panurgus calcaratus engrossed in nectaring in the Buffer Zone.
