On Burrowes this morning a Greenshank was the only wader of note. A Hobby was along the entrance track and the usual Marsh Harriers were all over. Sand Martins once again were much in evidence probably numbering in there 1,000s over the whole of the peninsular.
 Opening the flaps at Hanson this morning just about the only wader to be seen was a lonely looking Avocet. The 1st summer Little Gull put in an appearance and 5+ Little Ringed Plovers could be seen. By the track a to the hide an Emporer Dragonfly was devouring a Damselfly sp.
