20th July 2015

Weather: SE 2-3, some drizzle mid morning

A short morning visit by Obs members produced juveniles of Robin and Dunnock and a lovely juvenile Wheatear was present on Wheatear wall but was chased off by the Rock Pipits.

An immature Peregrine showed well at Little Eye (back of camera shot below) but from photographs appeared to be ringed with a red ring so perhaps an escaped falconer's bird?

Visiting birder Elliot Montieth put the time in over the tide and was rewarded with some stunning views of early returning waders including Dunlin, Turnstone and Ringed Plover (see his blog for more).

Another stunning adult summer Mediterranean Gull was found at the southern end of our recording area on the shore by WKML as the tide flooded.
