The season’s first Minke Whale (BP) was reported off the Brigg today, while Little Egrets were at the Dams yesterday and south at the Gap (two) on 8th. Wader passage was heavy at sea on 6th, when 141 Redshanks and 93 Dunlin were the most numerous of a decent cast; Whimbrels, Curlews and others are southbound most days in small numbers.
