This was another very quiet day for birds – hardly a new arrival of any kind was noted. A Snipe was flushed in the marshy lowlands and the nine Ringed Plovers were still on the beach with six Dunlins and 23 Turnstones. Passerine numbers were very poor with just two Willow Warblers, a Sedge Warbler and seven Wheatears worth mentioning.

Suitable weather and a shrinking moon have provided opportunity for catching waders on the beach during the night and several Ringed Plovers, amongst other things, have been ringed in the last few days. Photo (c) Beth Else
