Another nice July day with waders, terns and gulls very much on the agenda.
Passage waders included 12 Whimbrel, 2 Ringed Plover, 9 Turnstone, 3 Dunlin, 24 Sanderling and a single Bar-tailed and 20 Black-tailed Godwits; some of these waders were still in smart summer plumage.
The Sandwich Tern flock on the East Hoyle bank increased again with 980 counted along with 30 Common Terns.
A moulting adult Mediterranean Gull was again seen east of the main island on the shore with Black-headeds.
220 Grey Seals were noted and the harebells are flowering now.
