August 17th 2011

The weather was stunning this morning with no wind which allowed a Cormorant and a few Canada Geese to become the first to stand on the “island” off lin croft point even though it’s still just under the surface
At least 11 Ringed Plover, 2 Dunlin, Little Ringed Plover and 5 Common Sandpiper seen on our walk out to toft bay with one flighty Greenshank suddenly deciding it wanted its photo taken and came in close for Bob despite disturbance from the many walkers out this morning.
A first winter Little Gull was off biggen bay and sightings included 3 Swift, 200 House Martin, 150 Swallow, 30+ Sand Martin, 6 adult Yellow-legged Gull, 6 Yellow Wagtail and 19 Buzzard.
