Apart from a couple of Whimbrel in the harbour, the Mute Swan still sitting on (a nest maybe) on New Island and a pair of Common Terns on Tern Island it was all very quiet.

Mid morning produced an easterly movement of Swifts
|Swift action is needed to capture these birds in flight!|
An afternoon walk to the North Wall produced very few waders except Whimbrel .The Slipe Field 'dog walk' had a number of Whitethroats singing.
One thing that did catch my eye was a large notice board erected on the eastern side of Church Farm...
Can you spot the error? One of several actually!
