Save a couple of hours after day break and the last hour before dusk it is easy to sum up today in one word ‘RAIN’.

This evening I walked from the Obs across Longis nature reserve and back via the golf course during which I had 50+ Swallow, 2 Sand Martin, 2 Whimbrel, 1 Sparrowhawk, 1 Wheatear and on one of the course fairways 29 Bar-tailed Godwits. Winds continued today between W & SW turning NW and dropping overnight.

Today we welcome Emily Richens visiting from the UK volunteering at the Obs for a week.
