Saturday 26th April

With the site blown out for most of the day the focus was largely on seawatching and early morning the first three Arctic Tern of the year were offshore with three Little and three Common Tern. Later in the day another Arctic Tern flew south and six dropped in briefly in front of the hide before heading upriver. The evening also saw the bulk of passage offshore with seven Great Skua and 770+ Manx Shearwater south along with 45+ Kittiwake and 20+ Fulmar. Elsewhere over 60 Whimbrel passed through the site, three Wheatear were in Greenland Lake and eight Pale-bellied Brent Geese were in the Bight.

Wildlife News: A Grey Seal was offshore.
