12th July 2013

Little of note today, although yesterday saw the first returning Purple Sandpipers (two) and Sanderling to the Brigg, as well as the roughly consistent daily tallies of up to a hundred Manx Shearwaters and several hundred Common Scoters. Today’s highlight was a male Banded Demoiselle at East Lea (MJP, DL), the first record since 2010 and only the fifth or sixth ever.
