Lazy Day.

A plod around the bushes at The Point, then along the beach from the lighthouses to the fishing boats and back to the observatory, saw 3 Common Whitethroat, 2 Meadow Pipits, 2 Kestrels and a Sparrowhawk. No sign of a Scarce Toroiseshell, best I could find was a Painted Lady by the fishing boats. 

 At the ARC from Hanson a Reed Warbler was collecting food for its young. 2 Black-tailed Godwits flew in onto the beginnings of an island which is very good news. In the hide a beautiful Wasp nest, so be careful if you are visiting the hide.
A lazy hour at the fishing oats this afternoon:
Great Crested Grebe: 1 on the sea
Gannet: 2 down
Sandwich Tern: 6 down
The bull Grey Seal
Harbour Porpoise: 1
Chatting to angler there who had been fishing all day, he told me he hadn't caught anything today, indeed he had not even had a bite, which may explain the lack of Terns off shore.
At the South end of the ARC 6 Little Egrets and c150 Lapwing of note.
