Thursday 20th June

Large numbers of birds again foraging offshore including 128 Black-headed and two 2cy Mediterranean Gull, seven Manx Shearwater, five Common and two Sandwich Tern.

A substantial increase to 76 Curlew roosting in the saltmarsh with 18 Whimbrel, nine Redshank, five Dunlin and a Knot also present over high tide. The six Eider were on Finger Point with a family of Canada Geese having arrived from elsewhere, with no breeding this year.

A Rock Pipit in The Bight and a Great Spotted Woodpecker were other dispersing juveniles, with the family of Lesser Whitethroat still around Dead Dolphin Wood.
