No incoming tide coverage today

Malcolm and I covered the same area this morning with similar results - unfortunately due to having to deal with a problem, didn't then go and get a handle on the wetland warblers, notably the western marsh which has not seen a ringing session or an early doors listening session for some time now.  Hopefully its still calm tomorrow morning

The forecast coming up at the back end of this week really lends itself to some coverage of sheltered coastal trees and bushes and fingers crossed for something like a rosefinch or rb shrike reaching this side......... or perhaps something on the sea like a belated Black tern at last!

Coverage over the two or three days though will be limited due to commitments elsewhere for the most regular prowlers!

Sea - short low tide check only
Eider - 82
Great-crested Grebe - 4
Sandwich Tern - two fishing in distant channel
Swallow - 4 north

Insects on Middleton - thanks Janet
