Thursday 5th July

Two visits to the Patch today found some more good passage birds. This morning the LITTLE GULL was back again (the first time I'd personally seen it for a while though others have continued to report it) along with at least 10 common terns, 9 little egrets, the two COMMON SANDPIPERS still and two OYSTERCATCHERS. This evening I was able to add 6 LITTLE RINGED PLOVER, 1 GREENSHANK and a CURLEW which spent five minutes in the tall grass just to the North of the floods before flying off again calling. In addition Sydney Penner had a possible Mediterranean Gull this afternoon.

I've been meaning to mention this Bee Orchid that I found in
 Burgess Field recently. I've no idea whether they've been around in 
previous years but it was nice to see.
