Sunday 5th June

Quiet, very quiet – or so I thought, I actually saw more than I was expecting – which wasn’t much. Highlight was a 1st summer Common Gull, boring I know but unusual for this time of year, and to be fair it wasn’t stopping and went straight through.

There was a single Common Tern, no doubt they will be more regular when the bring their youngsters here later in the summer to feed. It appears Shustoke provides a reliable food source but little in the way of nesting habitat. The other good bird today was a Redshank which was a surprise. Anyway until next time.
