22nd May

There was a surprising late movement of terns with the highlight of a White-winged Black Tern in the morning and 16 Little Terns and four Black Terns later in the day. A few waders were also on the move including four Greenshanks of note. It remains very slow on the land for common migrants but a Bee-eater made a brief appearance over the Point.

Eight Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
