30th May

Weather: E/NE-2, warm and overcast

With spring nearing an end, passage migration is all but a trickle now. 150 Swift and several hirrundines formed an impressive feeding flock over the Lighthouse mid afternoon. 

A Wheatear remains in the paddocks were there are also a pair of Lapwing.

17 Sandwhich Tern and 5 Common Tern could be found on the sand bar from the Lighthouse car park. Of other interest, several Common Blue Butterfly were along the Birkett including this lovely female.
