A calm and cloudy, occasionally wet, morning brought a decent movement overhead but very few birds in the bushes.Of note were six Yellow Wagtails, nine Grey Wagtails, 420 Meadow Pipits and 65 Reed Bunting but the best the bushes could offer was just six Wheatears and 12 Chiffchaffs.
One Arctic Skua on the sea was the only bird of note here.
A Glossy Ibis was found on the RSPB Reserve in mid-afternoon but was then not seen again until 1810hrs when it flew out of its ditch and circled around the rest of the Reserve. At least seven Great White Egrets and the Cattle Egret were still in the area.
