Curlew Sandpipers still in residence

3rd September 2011 – rain, persistent and heavy at times S3
The rising tide produced just a handful of Sandwich Tern.
Grounded Migrants
The persistent and heavy rain was not conducive to either birds or birders and consequently sightings of grounded birds were limited to 3 Wheatear and single Goldcrest and Chiffchaff.
Wildfowl and Waders
Wigeon numbers are starting to build and waders included 16 Greenshank and 3 Curlew Sandpiper.
A single Little Egret saw out the tide along the eastern shore.
