I have been busy, but carried on patching each morning until 3 days ago. The misty start of the 25th robbed me of the pair of May Pochard, which is very unusual.
The odd hour on the sunny days around 25th got me another Hobby, the 26th all was very quiet, just 17 non breeding Gadwall, 7+ pairs of Common Tern on the shingle island.
Then 27th I was at the shops when this year's 2nd Little Tern showed up, it hadn't been there at 06:30. There were several days of 1-3 Linnet in front of Ron't hide again, then on the 30th I caught sight of an Oystercatcher chick on Sandford....fingers crossed it makes it this time.
