Thursday 25th August 2016

Much was expected today, with north-easterlies and a cold front moving southwards, however this appeared to bring recent movement almost to a stop during the course of the day. Highlights were 14 Gannets, a Fulmar, 7 Little Terns, and at the Golf Course 2 Black Terns, 183 Sandwich Terns and 1123 Common Terns together with a further 131 tern sp. Of note were 5 Whimbrel, 5 Black-tailed Godwits, 4 Willow Warblers, 3 Lesser Whitethroats, 5 Whitethroats, 5 Reed Warblers, and near the NWT payhut a Spotted Flycatcher, 2 Redstarts and 3 Whinchats, with 2 Stonechats also present.
