24th May 2016

Weather: SE force1/2, later W force1, warm in the sunshine

Just when we thought we had seen the last of large flocks of Knot, a line of 2,000 flew north out of the estuary at 06.15hrs, Dunlin showed later with about 250 in a group mobile around the island, also a small number of Ringed Plover and a single Grey Plover and Bar-tailed Godwit.

Small migrants were not present apart from a Wheatear on Middle early in the day and a single Redpoll over calling.

Two Peregrines were seen this morning, one was in hunting mode but was not seen to have any luck.

Very little on the sea before the tide, only a few terns, but the high tide later may be more productive.

Ringed: 2 Linnets                         [ 282-24 ]
