Given how hard Sandwich Tern flocks were hit by avian flu it was a heartening sight watching around 250 individuals fishing off Mannez lighthouse this lunch time. 19 Balearic Shearwaters and 1 Sooty Shearwater passed by whilst we enjoyed the spectacle of the feeding Terns.

Migrants recorded today included Yellow Wagtail, Whitethroat and Garden Warbler.
