Maisie's 18th birthday today! Happy birthday Mais! She won't read this. Snuck out for a few minutes but the weather was horrendous. Highlight was a smart male Black Redstart in gardens around Shelly Beach - picked up on call, and at least 3 Purple Sandpipers on Maer Rocks. Otherwise an adult Mediterranean Gull off Mudbank and the Great Northern Diver was off there yesterday.
