6th June 2015

Weather: WSW 5-6, 4/8 cloud

A blustery but sunny morning saw observers enjoying a very peaceful flood tide.

Numbers of waders again were surprisingly good for this late in the Spring with late Sanderling moving through (176 counted), plus smaller numbers of Dunlin and Ringed Plovers (probably Tundrae race birds).

Five Little Egrets fished the flooding gutter but there were fewer terns today although Gannets could be seen offshore and a pair (presumably) of Great Crested Grebes loafed on the sea just east of the Obs.

Juvenile Linnets sheltered where they could from the blustery westerly wind.
