Forget autumn, summer is here

Today was an absolute scorcher with the sun blazing down and drenching everything all day long.  Highlights from the last few days have to be the quite significant rise in wader numbers at various sites. At Holes Bay there was a decent count of 80 Redshank, 45 Curlew, 19 Black-tailed Godwit and 9 Oystercatcher, interestingly also a Wigeon there too. At Lytchett Bay a great total of 12 Green Sandpiper, 44 Curlew, 17 Little Egret and 2 Black-tailed Godwit. A ringing session targeting on Nightjar in the north of the harbour was successful with a second year male being ringed.
