10th May 2019

A scattering of new migrants today included a Pied Flycatcher in the Top Scrub, two Whinchats at the Tip and a small upsurge in Willow Warblers and Sylvias, while on the sea, an Arctic Skua and 45 Sandwich Terns went north; a single Great Northern Diver remained in the bay, and the Greenshank, Redshank, Dunlin and Snipe are still at the Dams.

Yesterday (9th), cold northerlies and heavy showers saw an Arctic Skua fly east through the Dams (very unusual!), and 22 Sanderlings north.
