5th July 2017

Weather: West 3 vis 3 mls with mist around the estuary early on.

A good start to the day was a Redshank on the rocks to the west of the lagoon as the tide rose.

A flock of 12 Shelduck flew west over the island and a single was on the water off the north end.

Two Grey Plover were present and 58 Curlew were around the islands. After the tide 150 Sandwich and 5 Common Terns roosted on the East Hoyle.

The Autumn migration truly started today with the first Willow Warbler spending the morning feeding outside the old obs garden (photos by AS).
