A couple of more images of The Midrips Stilts.
Common Tern Denge Marsh
The Burrowes was quiet, though 7 Avocets there was new, the usual Reed, Sedge and Cetti's could be seen and heard all round the reserve as could Common and Lesser Whitethroat. At Denge Marsh the Common Terns were still trying to move the Herring Gulls off the raft. The Herring Gulls eggs will be hatching very soon, I guess the Terns nests will be wiped out by them. Hobby's were showing well from the ramp.
On the ARC many House Martins and Swallows with a few Swifts were hawking very high over the lake, also a few more Hobby's there and a Little Ringed Plover.
Hobby from the ramp
After an excellent spring of sea watching (228 Pomarine Skuas) we are now in the summer doldrums, so this afternoon at the fishing boats it was no surprise that there were just a few Common and Sandwich Terns feeding off shore along with a few Gannets, at least 4 Harbour Porpoises and a Grey seal were there.
Whimbrel taken at The Midrips
The MV has been bulging in the last couple of days but little of note was found.
