Sunday 22nd April

Fog rolled in mid morning but before then single Great Northern and Red-throated Diver were offshore and counts from the estuary including 32 Pale-bellied Brent offsite, 13 Ringed Plover, 12 Whimbrel, five Dunlin and just four Sandwich Tern. Migrants were limited to four Wheatear, two Whitethroat, two Willow and a Reed Warbler with 10 Swallow and three House Martin overhead.

Once the fog cleared in the afternoon a return visit saw some raptor movement with the year's first Hobby head in from the east before gaining height and heading north and a Red Kite head NE over the site with two more offsite also heading east.
