Thursday 25th April 2013

The thick fog hampered viewing early morning but did produce some migrants with the first Yellow Wagtail of the year flying over with 70 Swallow and two House Martin but just five Wheatear on the deck. Offshore 50+ Pale-bellied Brent Geese flew west with 31 Common Scoter, 17 Sandwich, seven Little and four Common Tern also present. Elsewhere 48+ Whimbrel, 45 Dunlin, 24 Ringed Plover, 15 Curlew, three Grey Plover, two Dark-bellied Brent Geese, two Sanderling, a first summer Mediterranean Gull and a Redshank were in the estuary and the Pintail was still present.
