As we enter mid-summer, the last few days, as expected have been fairly quiet with the Grey Phalarope at Gretchen the continuing highlight. A few waders have begun to return though, with the first 2 Purple Sandpipers on 27th when there were also 124 Turnstones and Golden Plovers peaked at 134. Occasional Black-tailed Godwits have also been seen, while the 3 Little Gulls on Gretchen were joined by a fourth on the latter date. Passerines sightings were few and far between but the 2 Chiffchaffs remained in Holland gardens.
