It so much quieter than it was last week on the big day- no marsh terns, very few Little and Med Gulls, not much visible migration at all. A good opportunity to look at that botany and butterflies.
Did a habitat survey on the plot this afternoon and started working out some plans.
I spent a bit of time sound recording and photographing the Pied Wheatears- something weird going on out here so will do a blog post on that later.

Yelkouan Shearwaters- yesterday there were thousands of these but seems like most moved on since - the turnover at this site is dramatic.
A close up of a Yelkouan Shearwater (above and below) from Shabla last week showing its bits including legs projecting beyond tail and dark undertail coverts
