Sunday 12th May

Another day of high pressure and clear skies saw low numbers but some continuing signs of movement, with at least 11 Whitethroat on site and a new colour-ringed Dunlin in The Bight.

Counts from the estuary included 19 Dunlin, 18 Sanderling, 15 Curlew, 14 Bar-tailed Godwit, 11 Grey and four Ringed Plover, nine Whimbrel, the regular five Eider and a Turnstone.

Elsewhere a summer-plumaged Great Northern Diver flew high SW offshore where there were two Sandwich Tern and a pale phase Arctic Skua chasing a Kittiwake.

Other Wildlife: A Grey Seal was off Langstone Rock and six species of butterfly were on the wing including Large and Small White, with 'lots' of Silver Y showing increasing insect migration.
