A quick look at the ARC saw that 2 Black Terns, a Little Tern and several Arctic and Common Terns still present.
A quick look around Galloways saw little of note.
This evening on the reserve the 2 Black Winged Stilts were showing well and even mating, a Marsh Harrier spooked them briefly but they soon settled down. A Hobby was hawking over Dengemarsh, Sedge, Reed, Cetti's Warblers, Common Whitethroats and a Cuckoo were all singing. A Whinchat was showing well by Christmas Dell until 10 seconds before I arrived and party of 8 Swallows were around the pits.
