Another very slow sea watch today 06.00-08.00 in the company of AJG and SO. Small numbers of Common Scoter, Gannets and Sandwich Terns, a single Great Skua and 2 Arctic Skuas, 3 Razorbills, a few Kittiwakes a Swallow in and the 1w Iceland Gull at The Patch.
Around the bushes 2 Wheatears, a few Willow Warblers, Chiffchaffs, Whitethroats and Blackcaps, 7 Swallows over and the highlight a Song Thrush.
Wheatear in the Desert
Around the reserve, The Ring-necked Duck still, a different Great White Egret from the other day as this one still has a yellow bill, plenty of Common Whitethroats, Sedge and Reed Warblers around, a couple of Whimbrel from the entrance track also 2 Pintail on Burrowes.
A mid afternoon sea watch from the fishing boats saw more Harbour Porpoises than birds. A late afternoon wander around the ARC found little of note.
