Sunday 6th April

The highlight was the first recording area record of Caspian Gull, a first summer which was in front of the hide for just twenty minutes around midday. Another highlight was the first Little Tern of the year offshore, the earliest ever site record following one on 7th April 2007. Also offshore 51+ Sandwich Tern and two Great Northern Diver with the Glaucous Gull still around the estuary mouth. Counts from the estuary included 19 Redshank, 13 Dark-bellied Brent Geese, 12 Ringed Plover, 12 Sanderling, eight Turnstone, six Grey Plover, four Knot, two Greenshank and two Dunlin. Elsewhere a Siberian Chiffchaff by the Main Pond was the only fresh passerine migrant.
