Weather: WSW force 0/1 light rain
A mid-morning visit found 6 Wheatears around, a small movement of Swallows and a couple of House Martins. A Skylark was by the light and a Raven continued the run of records lately by this species. The Brent Geese suddenly increased to 21 birds including a few juveniles. There are still a good number of Sandwich Terns about which together with some gulls attracted an Arctic skua to the area where they gathered. Waders included 39 Redshank, 32 Turnstones and 2 Bar-tailed Godwits while also on the shore were 9 Little Egrets and a Shag on the sea.
