A trickle of waders.

After emptying the trap this morning I made my way to Hanson hide, where apart from plenty of Hirundines, a few LRPs and a Black-tailed Godwit little of note was seen. On Burrowes 2+ Green Sandpipers, a Common Sandpiper, a Little Stint, 13 Dunlin and a Greenshank but little else of note.
Another Little stint on the ARC and a Wood Sandpiper briefly on Burrowes this afternoon per MH.
Greenshank from Firth hide this evening.
At the observatory the fridge was full of moths, the Orache Moth, Splendid Brocade, Brussels Lace and Small Mottled Willows to name a  few.
An early after sea watch was very slow, only enlivened by 3 Harbour Porpoises.
13.30-14.30 from the fishing boats:
Fulmar: 1W
Gannet: 22W
Cormorant: 4 o/s
Mediterranean Gull: 3 o/s all adults
Kittiwake: 2W
Sandwich Tern: 10W
Common Tern: 1W
Swift: 1 out
Harbour Porpoise 3

A mid afternoon walk out to the back of Scotney was curtailed by the onset of heavy drizzle, though I did manage to see the 2 spoonbills and a Little Owl.
A trip to Burrowes this evening found no change from this morning.
