Went straight to The Patch this morning, on the walk there 100s of House Martins and Sand Martins with a few Swallows seemed to be coasting west, there were 2 Wheatears and 6 Chiffchaffs on the perimeter fence, on the way back 2 Ravens were upsetting the local feral Pigeons. At The Patch a single Black Tern, 1 Little Gull, 4+ Arctic Terns and 30+ Common Terns with the usual Gulls.
A plod around the Lighthouse, Station Gorse, The Desert, Lloyds and West Beach saw 35 Chiffchaffs, 6 Blackcaps, 5 Common Whitethroats, 6 Wheatears, c100 Meadow Pipits and c100 Linnets.
At the south end of the ARC the Pectoral Sandpiper with 3 Ruff and a Bar-tailed Godwit.
From the Screen just 2 Little Stints as reed cutting work was being carried out in front of Hanson.
