8th June 2014

Weather:S/SE-variable 3 .overcast and thundery.

No sooner does the race for the North finish but and the return to the South begins. The absence of Turnstone at the Lighthouse groynes has been evident for many weeks now, however on this mornings tide the familiar chatter was once again heard and two Turnstone flew in across the bay to roost up for the high tide. Also heading south were two Black headed Gulls , presumed failed breeders. 

A single Wheatear remains in the inland fields and a single juvenile Lapwing is the first to fledge for two years as a result in the change of land use practices

The alarm calls of disconcerted Hirrundines alerted of a raptor and sure enough a Hobby came in off the sea scattering the flock and this too continued south over the inland fields.
