Beach Reserve

Yellow Wagtails have been around in good numbers at dawn over the past few days along Shore Ridges and Harbour Farm, with at least 200 today. Wheatears also made a good show this morning with 6 along Shore Ridges and 8 on the cut areas of Harbour Farm, in addition 2 Arctic Skua were chasing Common and Sandwich Terns offshore and 3 Whinchat were perched along the fence by Wader Pool.
