Monday 3rd July 2017

Plenty of pollen on the insects on the Teasels at the moment but if your a messy eater one gets covered in it. On the move southbound 57 Black-headed Gull, 32 Swift, 7 Curlew, 6 Sand Martin, 5 Oyks, 3 Grey Heron, 2 Common Gull & Little Egret plus northbound a Sandwich Tern. Fresh brood of Great Tit out today could be a pair that failed on their first attempt and tried again or a pair churning out a second brood. Two Muntjac were on beach early on which is the first time more than a single has been recorded here.

Nut-tree Tussock is another one of those species common inland but rare here.

8 birds ringed: 5 Great Tit, 1 Swallow, 1 Linnet, 1 Robin.
