Tuesday 1st May

A bright start followed by weather conditions more in line with this Spring with wind and rain to close the day. The evening saw a distant Pomarine Skua offshore with 52 Manx Shearwater, 35 Kittiwake, 18 Gannet, 16 Common Scoter, 10 Sandwich Tern and a Red-throated Diver.  

Elsewhere counts from the estuary included 47+ Whimbrel, 17 Ringed and 12 Grey Plover, eight Sanderling, six Dunlin, four Knot and two Bar-tailed Godwit. Migrants were limited to three Wheatear on Warren Point with seven Whitethroat, four Reed Warbler and two Blackcap now holding territory.
