Medmerry: There were still about 60 Common Scoter off the Coastguard Station this morning, plus a couple of Gannets and Sandwich Terns going east. (AH)
Medmerry: The Black-winged Stilts were still being vigilant this morning, and one, possibly two, chicks were briefly sighted (SR). They have settled just about as far as it is possible to get from any viewpoint, making it hard to see the adults and all but impossible to spot the chicks, though one of the adults was reported feeding on their old pool early morning, and one did fly over to check us out on near the breach.
Otherwise there was a Kingfisher in the creeks, a (probably juvenile) Hobby catching insects overhead, a couple of Gannets offshore, one or two Sandwich and Common Terns around, a couple of Reed Buntings and Yellowhammers along the banks, and 40+ Grey Plovers, 15 Turnstone and 10 Dunlin in the tidal creeks. (S&SaH/AH)
Around the breach from the West Sands side the long-staying, but elusive, Curlew Sandpiper was seen again with Dunlin, along with a Greenshank and a Little Ringed Plover. (BI)
