17th May 2015

Weather: WSW 5-6, 7/8 cloud, moderate vis

Up to 1,800 Dunlin mainly in summer plumage roosted at the North End over the tide with five Sanderling and forty Ringed Plover the highlights of the high tide WeBS count day.

A single Peregrine was seen as observers left the island - one of the birds that have been hunting the Dunlin over the last week or two no doubt.

A single Greenland Wheatear was the only passerine migrant seen today.
