Only 2 Garganey at the ARC Pit first thing this morning with 2 Little Ringed Plovers and the Curlew. The sea was very quiet just a few Common Scoter and a light passage of Common Terns and 3 Harbour Porpoises? off shore. On the land migrants were very sparse with just 4 Swallows, 2 Sand Martins and 2 Northern Wheatears. A Peregrine was around the power station briefly. Of interest a Crimson Rosella was in one the gardens and even that escaped my lens.
