Sunday 28th April 2013

The first Lesser Whitethroat of the year was on Warren Point but there was little sign of other passerine migration with three Wheatear present and 19 Swallow, four Goldfinch, a Chaffinch and a Meadow Pipit flying through. Offshore there were a minimum of 26 Great Northern Diver on the sea, mostly in summer plumage, a total of 114 Pale-bellied Brent Geese flew in and up estuary, three Little Tern were present and 12 Manx Shearwater flew south. Elsewhere wader counts included 44 Whimbrel, 34 Ringed Plover, 26 Dunlin, 13 Turnstone, two Bar-tailed Godwit and a Grey Plover with the Pintail on the Main Pond.
