14th July

The occasion of the Obs AGM got in the way of routine coverage today and the only reports from the Bill were of 40 Mediterranean Gulls, 4 Manx Shearwaters, 4 Common Scoter and a Yellow-legged Gull offshore and 3 Curlews overhead on the land. Elsewhere, 10 Dunlin, 4 Black-tailed Godwits and a Curlew were at Ferrybridge and a Grey Wagtail passed over at Blacknor.

Two Clouded Yellows were at the Bill today.

It was the most idyllic of dawns to be out birding anywhere around the island - the Black-tailed Godwits looked particularly special at Ferrybridge © Debby Saunders:
