7th - 8th July

 7th July

A bit of a shocker at the Bill with no reports from the land and almost all sea interest fizzling out to the extent that there were just 2 Manx logged all day!

8th July

Still struggling for migrant interest at the Bill despite unexpectedly bird-able/net-able conditions: nothing by way of new passerines; single Common Sand the only wader; just 2 Manx and a Balearic from the sea

Ferrybridge this morning 3 Common Sandpipers, 2 Black-tailed Godwits, Sanderling, 2 Dunlin, Curlew, 2 Sandwich Tern, Great Northern Diver east

There's already a summering - immature? - Great Northern Diver in Portland Harbour so the appearance of another individual - this one in summer plumage - over Ferrybridge this morning was very unexpected © Pete Saunders:
