3rd August 2015

A busy and high quality day in the area from dawn to dusk, with highlights over the sea consisting of two Spotted Redshanks south (MJP), an adult Roseate Tern south (MJP), three Little Terns south (JS) and a Yellow-legged Gull south (MJP); a long list of other waders recorded from the Brigg included Black-tailed Godwits and Grey Plover among many others. The Dams began to fulfill its muddy promise, with a Little Stint late on (NCt, SCt, MJP), five Green Sandpipers, a Little Egret, two Snipe, 25 Whimbrel (over) and five Curlew.

Thanks to Mark, staying at the Blue Dolphin, for his assistance in rescuing the juvenile Kittiwake at the Dams first thing this morning.
