Rain and more rain

21st July 2009 - overcast/rain SE4
A few Manx Shearwater, Gannet and Common Scoter appeared through the persistent and at times heavy rain.
Wildfowl and Waders
Three Shoveler were seen and waders included 3 Whimbrel and a Common Sandpiper.
Breeding Birds
It would appear that Reed Bunting and Stonechat have had a very good breeding season with above average numbers of juveniles in evidence.
