Thursday 15th May

The first Firecrest of the year was completely unexpected as it moved along the Back Path mid morning. This is only the second May record for the Warren following one on 1st May 2004. Other migrants today included a Sedge Warbler by the car park, two Yellow Wagtail and two Wheatear. Waders are also continuing to pass through with the third Kentish Plover of the year, a male, which flew through calling with a small flock of waders early evening but didn't stop, also on site 146 Sanderling, 54 Dunlin, 26 Ringed Plover, 19 Whimbrel, four Turnstone, two Grey Plover and two Bar-tailed Godwit.  Elsewhere the first Stock Dove of the year was recorded, two Jackdaw flew overhead and two Brent Geese remain in the estuary.

Wildlife News: The first Common Blue of the year was on Warren Point.
