Migration Time.

19th July

Finally a bit of change in the birds today.

A Whimbrel and seven Yellow Wagtails flew over the trapping area early this morning and a Hobby was hunting over the top of Long Pits in late morning.

On the shingle in front of the patch this morning, a juvenile Yellow-legged Gull was seen, with possibly the same individual present at the Fishing Boats this afternoon.

An afternoon seawatch produced 19 Kittiwakes, six Mediterranean Gulls and two Arctic Skuas, a light and dark phase bird, all heading west down channel. 135 Swifts and 47 Sand Martins headed out across the channel.

A single Porpoise was also seen from the boats.
