2nd June 2018

Weather: light air, mist around the estuary, rain from about 8.00
After the relatively warm, dry and settled weather this morning was cooler and decidedly wet, and the several breeding pairs of Swallows would struggle to find many insects for the young following the good conditions this week. Four young Linnets were abroad and the Pied Wagtails and Meadow Pipits were carrying food. Two Chiffchaffs (below) and a Sedge Warbler (bottom) were in the paddocks and 3 House Martins passed through but little other evidence of migration.
The 2 Eiders still stayed, as did a Whimbrel and 6 Shelduck, while on the sea a Gannet was logged with a couple of Scoters.
Ringed: 1 Chiffchaff, 1 Sedge Warbler, 1 Meadow Pipit.    [ 400-28 ]
