Charmouth - Fri 29th Jul

A Redshank this morning was new in. It was a welcome find in a generally poor month here for waders. Present on the beach at low water, it spent an hour looking for food amongst the exposed rocks and weed where the river flows out over the beach, before calling a few times and departing high westwards. Surprisingly, it's a #Patchyeartick being the first I've seen this year on the Charmouth patch.

 Also on the beach were plenty of Black-headed Gull with steadily increasing numbers of juveniles and 1 Mediterranean Gull:

 A party of Raven were seen again scavenging for scraps around the car park:

This evening, my first juvenile Mediterranean Gull of the year was showing on the beach.
