26th July 2020

Weather: W force 2,
A female Blackcap and a Willow Warbler were here this morning, despite the westerly breeze. Five Swift went through, whose appearance are less dependant on the wind direction. A pair of Peregrines and a Kestrel showed, and wader highlights were 15 Whimbrel, 10 Ringed Plover, 2 Bar-tailed Godwits, 14 Turnstone, 25 Sanderling and a good roost of 1,500 Knot, showing after the tide, including summer plumaged ringed birds from Iceland in 2017 and Altcar in lancs from March 2018.
The tern roost has not increased much as yet, still at about 90 Common and 300 Sandwich Terns, some feeding young.
Five Little Egrets were around the islands.
