A Black-tailed Godwit was on the east side in the morning, and the recent Greenshank was seen both before and after the tide. A group of 5 Little Egrets roosted the high tide at the north end of Middle (above).
The conditions meant more time was spent sea-watching than usual, but the large gatherings of Manx Shearwaters of the last few days were not observed and only 6 could be found. Others seen from the north end were 4 Arctic Skuas, 2 Shag, 3 Guillemot, 70 Gannet, and 15 Great Crested Grebes. After the tide an adult winter Mediterranean Gull was on the shore by the marine lake.
Highlight of the sea-watch however, was a Peregrine that hunted around the sea hide for a while, often swooping within a few feet of the observers who looked on in astonishment from the open hide window, it was far too close for photographs !
Ringed :- 1 Willow Warbler
