Seaforth nr,
A visit to hightown dunes produced a grasshopper warbler. Reeling and showing briefly. On the shore at crosby 50 sanderling were present some in summer plumage. A couple of wheatear were on the rocks by the radar tower. The 2 spoonbills flew into seaforth at midday after spending the morning feeding on the shore up at coastguards. A 1st summer med gull , a kittiwake, an adult yellow legged gull and 17 1st summers, 1 2nd summer and an adult little gull. An artic tern was with the common terns.
A barwit and blackwit flew around the freshwater pool a couple of times together and it was interesting how much smaller the barwit was compared to the blackwit.
