Sunday 20th April

A strong northerly wind coupled with heavy rain for most of the day didn't deliver good birdng on site. The only new arrivals were in the estuary with 39 Black-tailed Godwit, 92 Dunlin, 30 Turnstone, 14 Ringed Plover, nine Bar-tailed Godwit, six Whimbrel, three Curlew, two Grey Plover and a first summer Mediterranean Gull. Elsewhere two Wheatear were on site and offshore two Red-breasted Merganser and a Manx Shearwater flew south with three Velvet Scoter amongst 80+ Common Scoter.
