Saturday 19th April

There was no sign of the Kentish Plover today with the Ringed Plover flock down to 14 birds, other waders in the estuary included 77 Dunlin, nine Whimbrel, seven Grey Plover, two Bar-tailed Godwit and a Common Sandpiper. The Snow Bunting remianed on Warren Point whilst grounded migants included the first Whitethroat of the year, five Wheatear, a White Wagtail, a Grasshopper and three Willow Warbler with the year's first Swift and a late Siskin overhead. Offshore an second year Iceland Gull, two Pale-bellied and a Dark-bellied Brent Geese flew east with 110+ Common and two Velvet Scoter, a Long-tailed Duck and 35+ Sandwich Tern.
