I can only find one Shelduck creche, one at Jewson's of five young, so looking a poor season for them. On a brighter note the four Mute Swan cygnets are doing well on Mallard Pond.
Apart from Curlew and Oystercaters, other waders on the move included two Whimbrel and one Common Sandpiper today.
Two adult Med. Gulls were at the Webley high tide roost this morning, and of c120 Black-headed Gulls only five were 1st year juveniles.
On the marsh at dusk, five Swifts, c100 Swallows and c30 Sand Martins
