However, we would request that you continue to observe safe practises and sanitiser and spray will continue to be provided to clean down the handles and closures in the hide after you have used it.

A quiet end to the month. The best of the birds on the land were three Marsh Harriers, a Common Sandpiper, 580 Swallows, 11 Chiffchaffs, a Pied Flycatcher, three Whinchats, a Grey Wagtail and a Tree Pipit. At sea, two Tufted Ducks, 30 Knot, six Mediterranean Gulls, two Black Terns and two Arctic Skuas were seen during three hours of watching.
Six Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
Another evening visit for orthoptera produced five Sickle-bearing Bush-crickets and an excellent chorus from the Tree Crickets.
