A summer plumaged Curlew Sandpiper was identified among a resting flock of Dunlin near Middle Eye (EW). Fewer Willow Warblers today, probably about 10, but a Whitethroat was new on the island. Common terns reached a new peak at 280 birds amongst the Sandwich terns, 15 Little Terns were also logged. Eight Whimbrel was a small increase compared with the last few days, while a flock of 3,000 Dunlin was noted flying passed. Swallows are still about in numbers, also 5 Swift were over the island.
