This morning Least Carpet, Common/Lesser Common Rustic, The Snout, Beautiful Plume and Anania coronata were all new for the year. On Tuesday I made a late afternoon visit to Oare where the Bonaparte's Gull was still present. I also noted a Greenshank and 4 Whimbrel on the East Flood, but couldn't find the Spotted Redshanks. Yesterday we had another difficult day at Dunge in very windy conditions which ended mid-afternoon with horizontal rain. Before that we noted 2 juv Yellow-legged Gulls at the patch where there was also a Med Gull. There was an Avocet on Burrows.
