Highlight was my first Black Tern of the year, an adult in amongst the terns at high tide. Other noteworthy birds were 2 Marsh Harriers, Peregrine, 15 Kestrels between Stonebridge and Pyes Hall, 15 Whimbrel, 4 Greenshank, whilst warblers were represented by 8 Whitethroats & 2 Willow Warblers. Small Tortoiseshells are now clearly on the wing with at least 4 seen, also 3 Gatekeeper and a Red Admiral made up the butterfly highlights. A Common Lizard scurried across the footpath close to the base and a Muntjac briefly showed by the roadside verge close to Stonebridge at the end of the day.
