Axe Patch 21st August

Currently busy trawling through work so just a bullet point update:

  • No large Shearwaters off Seaton Beach this morning as per Steve Waite
  • Little Stint still present on BHM until mid-afternoon, after which it seemed to disappear
  • I had a White Wagtail (probable - pics to follow) very briefly on BHM at 17:00
  • Steve W, James M & Tim Wright were having a sea watch 17:00 - 19:00 ish but there were no reports of any large Shearwaters
  • I sat by the beach towards the West end (dog friendly) 18:40 - 19:10 and had approx a dozen Manx Shearwaters fly through heading West; this was a half-hearted watch as my loyalties were split between watching the sea and munching on some cheesy chips...
  • Tim Wright had singles of Knot, Ruff & Curlew Sandpiper on BHM from Tower Hide at 20:00
Hopefully the water levels will begin to fall on BHM now that the rough weather has seemingly gone and the high tides are getting gradually smaller.
