20th May 2016

Weather: WSW 2-3, 7/8 cloud, good vis

The weather wasn't conducive for passerine migration and so it proved with little or no evidence of such.

However, the waders continued to provide interest with 2,500 Dunlin present particular on the ebbing tide and these were joined by 145 Ringed Plover and Sanderling had increased as well on recent days.

No doubt the presence of good numbers of small waders attracted the attention of a Peregrine which roosted up on the sands near Little Eye having taken a recent prey.
