Five Black Terns were at the Dams today, with four heading south off the Brigg. Yesterday (7th) two Wood Sandpipers, a Whimbrel, a Greenshank, five Yellow Wagtails, four Ringed Plovers, four Dunlin and a Swift dropped in at the Dams during a similarly wild and wet day, and the gull flock there contained 11 Common and 15 Black-headed Gulls (all 2cy birds). Two Little Egrets came in off at Carr Naze, and an acredula Willow Warbler was on long Lane.
