Friday 25th April

Two Sedge Warbler singing early morning, the first of the year, hinted at some welcome migration but with the notable exception of a Hobby heading north this early promise was not fulfilled. Wader counts included 67 Bar-tailed Godwit, 22 Dunlin, 18+ Whimbrel, 13 Ringed and seven Grey Plover, five Sanderling and a Knot. Elsewhere an Iceland Gull was off John's Watch with four Red-throated and single Black-throated and Great Northern Diver, two Tufted Duck, a Little and c40 Sandwich Tern and c25 Manx Shearwater also offshore.
