Oystercatcher also in good numbers 300 and 200.A flock of 9 Greenshank , adult Med Gull , Yellow Wagtail and the first juvenile Little Egrets have been seen . Redshank , Dunlin ,Common Sandpiper , Ringed Plover  , Whimbrel , and lapwing are filling up the estuaries at low tide. Little ,Sandwich and Common Terns were seen at Hodbarrow along with another 2 + 1 Greenshank.
Nice to see Grayling and Gatekeeper here. Also nice to see another Otter feeding on crabs and fish near Ravenglass  watched for about 40 minutes .

On the 16th July I had 4 Common Terns NNW over the house ,which is the third tern species from the garden   ,,,
