Sunday 9th september 2018

Another windy day meant the smaller birds kept their heads down and proved challenging to see with the only real noteworthy ones being single Wheatear and Yellow Wagtail. The larger species were slightly easier to see with a Great White Egret noted several times over the Grazing Marsh, six Greenshanks were on the Lavender Marsh and two Green Sandpipers were on the Broadwater. Offshore there were counts of 125 Sandwich Terns, 97 Gannets and single Red-throated Diver and Arctic Skua.
