Cuckoo was our target species this morning, and on our first stop of the morning at Druridge Pools 2 Cuckoos were seen, one giving super views from the south-facing hide. 7 Black-tailed Godwits were also present here, and a Yellow Wagtail dropped in.

We decided to have a seawatch off Druridge Pools which resulted in 5 Manx Shearwaters and a Little Gull passing north.

Chevington was quiet with a couple of Spoonbills again on the North Pool along with a pair of Little Gulls. At least 20 Lesser Butterfly Orchids were also on the reserve with plenty of Northern Marsh Orchids as well.
