Had a call left on the answerphone when I arrived back home last evening to tell me there was a Wood Sandpiper on Breach hurried down at 8.30p.m. to get good views of the bird....but this morning , regretably, no sign.

Reed Warblers much in evidence feeding young and a pair of Sedge Warblers likewise.

On the beach this morning two 2 or 3 day old Ringed Plover chicks feeding themselves but how long they will survive remains to be seen. I dont like to sound pessimistic but there are many dogs running loose and the carrion crows are still hanging about!

The good news is that the Swallows nest in the hide now has 4 eggs and despite some disturbance from from people going into the hide the Swallows are still going in and out.
