GULL-BILLED TERN now in West Dorset

Mexican House Finch, East Prawle village, South Devon, late June 2010 (James Packer) - Perhaps now, with this coastal movement, more likely a ship-assisted vagrant rather than an escape
One of the adult GULL-BILLED TERNS from Bowling Green Marsh on Monday has relocated to Abbotsbury (West Dorset), where all afternoon and evening it has been showing off of the beach and over the Swannery meadow

In North Norfolk, a CAMBERWELL BEAUTY butterfly continues to attract visitors to Titchwell RSPB, where it is present for its third day around the picnic and information centre area. North Norfolk also hosts a party of EURASIAN SPOONBILLS at Cley NWT Pope's Marsh

Meanwhile, in South Devon, the orange-yellow variant MEXICAN HOUSE FINCH remains in East Prawle village, and in Somerset, the barking male LITTLE BITTERN at Loxton Marsh, Ham Walls RSPB. The breeding pair of PURPLE HERONS are busily feeding 2 or 3 young in the reedbed nest at Denge Marsh (East Kent) (the RSPB has kindly organised a special viewing platform and event, £3.00 for non-members)

An early returning migrant adult PECTORAL SANDPIPER is today on Gretchen Loch, North Ronaldsay (Orkney) (with male Green Sandpipers now returning and becoming widespread) but in North Lincolnshire, there has been no further sign of the first-summer BONMAPARTE'S GULL seen amongst roosting gulls at Far Ings Reserve.
