An enjoyable three day weekend but little change in species passing and numbers from last week. Many local resident species are busy breeding and chicks are beginning to show, particular abundant were Black-winged stilt and Kentish Plover chicks.
On the shore a lot quieter these days with many wading species having already moved north leaving but a few colourful stragglers however to compensate our summer breeding terns are starting to assemble in good numbers before their breeding season gets underway here.
