We did blue gate end early-ish, then up to Centre and Skytower, back to Causeway and Lower path, back to Centre for lunch.
Can add to above:
11 chiffchaffs – most singing but 2 not
1 nuthatch heard, 2 treecreepers seen.
Very good view of a Cetti’s singing on the boardwalk.
Two small flocks of sand martins seen very high when looking at buzzards – each flock had 1 house martin with it.
Great black-backed gulls nesting on Island again, another individual checking them out.
1 sparrowhawk and 1 kestrel also seen
1 brimstone butterfly
