Hudsonian Whimbrel continues to perform

1st July 2007 - overcast/heavy showers SE3
The Hudsonian Whimbrel showed well over the high tide period, again roosting on the sea washed turf in front of the old tip gates.
A quiet day, just 30 Sandwich Tern, 25 Common Scoter, 10 Manx Shearwater and 10 Gannet were logged during morning observations (0830-0930). A brief evening watch provided 2 dark-phase Arctic Skua.
Wildfowl and Waders
A flock of 12 Black-tailed Godwit flew through.
Both Barred Yellow and Map-winged Swift were new additions for the year.
