17th June 2017

Weather: calm with 10 mls vis, North 1 and 30mls later.
A surprisingly good day considering the month and the conditions. It started with Shelduck movements totalling 40 including the resident birds, then Curlew were spotted – 7 returning birds. Many more terns were about than of late with 130 Sandwich, 150 Common and a Little noted. A bonus was a Manx Shearwater going West to East close in to the North end.
Also on the sea were 8 Gannet, a Great Crested Grebe and a Guillemot.
Circa 70 Canada Geese flew from the Tanskeys and came down on the estuary North of Little Eye.
 Little Egrets numbered 6 with 2 Grey Heron.
The Kestrel was again present and there was a passage of 15 Swifts.     All photos AEH
