20th July

A wet and windy start to the day with 22mm of rain falling overnight.

The main interest of the day were five juvenile Yellow-Legged Gulls, present within the group of gulls at the fishing boats.

Only a small number of early migrants were recorded throughout the day with 19 Sand Martins, four Swifts, a Whimbrel and a single Yellow Wagtail noted.

At least two Porpoise and a single Grey Seal were also seen from the Fishing Boats.

Elsewhere a Roseate Tern made an appearance on the reserve, first being spotted on ARC before moving to Burrows.
