06-07-24 Saturday- Terns, Whimbrel

Temp  9°C to 16°C - 25mm of rain to start- hopefully enough to refill some wader pools, but also enough to cover mud at the lakes. Cloudy with rain on and off the rest of the day, with a moderate to strong W/WSW wind that gusted to 35mph. Let's hope some decent seabirds blow in soon.
