Wednesday 23rd April

Another day of southerly winds and rain delivered another day lacking in migrants with four Wheatear on Warren Point and a Reed Warbler at the Main Pond the only passerine arrivals. During the day 75+ Whimbrel and 16 Bar-tailed Godwit did fly in from the south but other wader counts were as low as the tide with just 24 Oystercatcher, eight Dunlin, five Grey Plover, three Sanderling and a Curlew. Also in the estuary three Dark-bellied Brent Geese and the Slavonian Grebe returning from its trip north to Topsham, with 25 Sandwich Tern and the Long-tailed Duck offshore.
