Black-tailed Godwit on the move

29th June 2012 – sunny spells SSW3/4
An hour looking over the sea on the mornings falling tide (0845-0945) produced a few birds with 40 Gannet, 35 Manx Shearwater, 20 Kittiwake, 9 Sandwich Tern, 7 Common Scoter, 5 Guillemot, 2 Little Tern and 2 Arctic Tern logged.
Wildfowl and Waders
The first Teal are already beginning to return and waders included 42 Black-tailed Godwit and small numbers of Knot and Dunlin.
It remains a very poor year so far for moths, however, recent new additions for the year include Small Angle Shades, Small Clouded Brindle, Dark Spectacle and Riband Wave.
