I had a quick look from the end of Grand Avenue, hearing a Yellow Wagtail and - strangely - seeing a Ringed Plover fly inland. A Grey Heron, nine Whimbrel, a Red-throated Diver, 27 Sandwich Terns and two Mediterranean Gulls flew east, while 11 Gannets were also logged.
My circuit of Goring Gap featured a Whimbrel flying low over land, two Yellow Wagtails north, three Great Crested Grebes and 17 Sandwich Terns offshore and a party of three Wheatears by the rough area. Other observations included a Kestrel, two Willow Warblers, two Whitethroats and two Turnstones.
