19th July 2020

Weather: N N W force 3
The best sighting of a pre-tide quick visit were a pair of female type Eiders flying to the east off the north end. A small trickle of small waders arrived with a few Dunlin and Ringed Plover,
 A distant flock of Knot (6,000) flew high to the east and over 1,000 Black-tailed Godwits were in the air south of Little Eye.  Six Redshank and 10 Whimbrel were also noted around the island.
With no obvious small migrants today focus was on views of 2 Peregrines,a Kestrel and the 370 Sandwich Terns with a good number of juveniles.
Little Egrets outnumbered Grey Herons by 4 to 3.

Ringed: 1 Linnet.
