A few Wheatears on the beach today and many Linnets with young in the gorse...its been a good breeding season for Linnets. On the wader front numbers are increasing and a lot more Dunlin in various stages of plumage are now present. Greenshanks can be seen from the hide at low tide when the mud is exposed and Ringed Plovers and a few Grey Plovers are about. A few Sandwich Terns flew west and Sand Martins (and noticeably no House Martins) likewise. There was a report of a couple of Knot about and an Osprey was seen and reported on Birdguides!
