Sunday 7th April 2013

Counts from the estuary continue to dwindle with 120 Dunlin, 97 Curlew, 39 Brent Geese, 33 Knot, nine Ringed Plover, seven Bar-tailed Godwit, six Grey Plover, four Teal and two Wigeon over the high tide, also present 14 Sandwich Tern including one (White EDZ) that was ringed as an adult on the Ythan Estuary, Aberdeenshire in August 2010. Thanks to Ewan Weston of the Grampian Ringing Group for the prompt information.  Elsewhere the drake Pintail remains on the Main Pond, just four Chiffchaff and three Wheatear were on site and six Red-throated Diver headed south offshore with one on the sea.
