At The Patch the hide is still being built, though not much to see there today. The highlight being an adult Little Gull and steady up channel movement of Gannets.
The bushes around The Point were virtually bird less the best being 3 Wheatears.
After a chat at the obs myself and TG visited the ARC Pit where 3 common Sandpipers and 2 Little Egrets were at the south end. From Hanson 1 Little Stint, 2 Ringed Plovers, 2 Little Ringed Plovers, 3 more Common Sandpipers, 5 Dunlin, 2 Black-tailed Godwits, 1+ Garganey, a flock c100 Sand Martins and a Raven over.
Near the screen 3+ Willow Warblers and a large Grass Snake swimming across the pit.
My first visit to the reserve for a week or two was uninspiring with 5 Tree Sparrows at Boulderwall, a single Grey Plover on Burrowes, a Common Sandpiper in front of the visitor centre and another with a Lapwing posing under Makepeace also at least 1 pair of Common Gulls were successful with at least 1 juvenile.
At Scotney c100 Golden Plover, 2 Whimbrel, 1 Curlew, 2 Common Sandpipers and 2 Marsh Harriers.
