Church Norton: There appear to be as many as 20 Little Terns and similar of Common Terns around the island, with a constant stream of birds coming and going and chasing each other and the numerous Black-headed Gulls around, and a Mediterranean Gull was upsetting them all as well.
In the harbour there were five Turnstones, similar of Ringed Plover, a Whimbrel, at least a dozen Curlews and eight Shelduck, whilst a Blackcap and a Chiffchaff were still singing near the car-park, and a Whitethroat and a couple of Reed Warblers were singing in the Severals. Also there were half a dozen Skylarks around the spit and four juvenile Grey Herons in the harbour. (AH)
Medmerry: Porthole Farm - The Little Owl was in its traditional haunt this evening, but there was not too much else about save a couple of Skylarks and Stock Doves and a few Swifts over. (AH)
