22nd August 2014

A quiet day today with very little on the sea this morning but for three Great and four Arctic Skuas, and no reports from elsewhere. Yesterday (21st) saw 224 Common Scoters, a juvenile Mediterranean Gull, a single Sooty and ten Manx Shearwaters past the hide, two Green Sandpipers and the Black-tailed Godwit at the Dams, and three Greenshank and four Ruff at East Lea. Six Whimbrel overflew the Gap, and a late report concerned five Little Egrets roosting at the Dams on 20th.
