Sunday 26th April

Two Spoonbill briefly in the Railway Saltmarsh before heading up river on the dropping tide mid-afternoon were the most notable migrants with numbers of Dunlin and Whimbrel also passing through. Offshore two Little Tern were present with 61+ Sandwich and a Common Tern, a Red-throated Diver flew south and the Velvet Scoter, c45 Common Scoter and a Great Northern Diver were on the sea. Elsewhere single Jay, Sedge and Willow Warbler were the only migrants in the bushes with the few Whitethroat, Reed Warbler and Blackcap probably birds back on territory.

Wildlife News: A Common Seal was hauled out on Bull Hill mid-afternoon.
