This morning a Wigeon and a juvenile Shelduck were on the Slurry Lagoon. In the afternoon a Hobby was seen over the Gravel Pits. PS.
A single Dunlin was feeding along the Slurry shoreline this afternoon and two Little Ringed Plovers were again on the Slurry. The Terns appear to have abandoned the Tern Platforms now their young have fledged and the Cormorants have been quick to take them over. JMD.
Six to eight Spotted Flycatchers were seen today as one or two families moved through on migration. They were seen along the Railway Embankment and by the Railway Bridge. At the Bridge were a large gathering of Hirundines, including at least 100 Swallows, which were spooked by a Hobby.
