Thursday 9th June 2016

Two Spoonbills started the day on the Broadwater and were viewable from the car park hide, with a Turtle Dove also noted feeding on the edge of the sea buckthorn opposite the car park. The biggest surprise of the day though was a summer plumaged Great Northern Diver, seen on the sea behind the Observatory. A pair of Med Gulls were again seen along the Broadwater later in the morning.
