The lighthouse garden and surrounding bushes this morning were still a migrant free zone. I met AJG on his way back from The Patch where an adult Black Tern was the only notable bird.
At the ARC from Hanson 3 Wood Sandpipers, 3 Common Sandpipers, a Black-tailed Godwit, 4 Little Ringed Plovers, 2 Marsh Harriers and a summer plumaged Black Necked Grebe were of note. In The Screen hide the Swallows are ready to leave and another pair are building another nest. A visit this evening found 5 Wood Sandpipers.
1st summer Little Gull
An hour at the fishing boats early afternoon produced nice views of a 1st summer Little Gull but little else.
