6th June 2013

Weather: SE 1-2, 7/8 clearing to 0/8, mist

Another promising morning weather-wise did not produce much on the grounded migrant front other than a single Chiffchaff found late morning.  Swifts (17), Swallows (9) and House Martins (3) were noted along with Little Egret and some evidence of passage waders (2 Whimbrel, Curlew, 9 Knot, 30 Sanderling and 50 Dunlin). 

The highlight ornithologically speaking was a single Brent Goose seen distantly on the tide edge South West of Middle Eye.

Insects were again much in evidence with a single Wasp Beetle found in the Wildlife Garden being the highlight.

The day ended with another beautiful sunset.
