Summer Fog!

Early morning at The Patch saw 100s of Herring and Black-headed Gulls, c25 Mediterranean Gulls mainly juveniles moulting into 1w plumage, off shore a few each of Gannet, Sandwich and Common Tern.
A net round with JTM was predictably disappointing, trapping a Reed Warbler, Chaffinch and a Robin.
An attempt at a sea watch from the fishing boats was stopped by a fog bank moving in and shrouding the beach.
3 visits to the ARC found 2 Wood Sandpipers, 2 Common Sandpipers, a Little Stint, a Dunlin, 3 Redshanks, 2 Black-tailed Godwits, 5+ Little Ringed Plovers, 3 Ringed Plovers, 4 Garganey, a Bittern, 2+ Great White Egrets and the usual 100s of Pochard, Gadwall and Tufty's.
