No news on Hudsonian Whimbrel
22nd June 2007-bright and sunny, showers by evening W3/4
A quick check of the saltings failed to produce the Hudsonian Whimbrel, although the small early morning tide failed to push the Curlew flock with which it was associating up on to the saltmarsh. The Yellow-legged Gull remains but appears to have a slightly different wing tip pattern than would perhaps be expected.
The Hooded Crow and a single Wheatear remain.
A few House Martin and Swift flew through.
Wildfowl and waders
At least 5 Whimbrel were logged.
