Water Treatment Works

A juv Whinchat was at the WTW just after midday, along with a single wheatear and an adult Med Gull was amongst the Black-heads. The old motorcross tip to the east of the WTW held plenty of chiffchaff, with 2 blackcaps, whitethroat and garden warbler. At least 5 clouded yellows were also on the tip, with three along the coastal path and two on the tip top.

On the ebbing tide the high tide wader roost below the traveller camp held 25 dunlin, 100 + shelduck and two cape shelduck hybrids (male and female). Another hybrid that looked like it had been crossed with Susan Boyle was on the water off the tip.

Highlight though was a Hare on the motorcross tip. The first I can ever recollect seeing there.
