Thursday 24th April

Fog early morning failed to deliver much in the way of migrants with just three Wheatear on the deck and single Yellow Wagtail and Meadow Pipit overhead. The bird of the day arrived late evening when a Turtle Dove was watching arriving in off from far out to sea before landing in trees behind Exmouth beach, shortly after a Wheatear also flew in off and starting flycatching along the seawall. Also offshore two Red-throated Diver and c120 Common Scoter with 41+ Sandwich Tern, 36+ Whimbrel and the Slavonian Grebe in the estuary. Elsewhere at least two fledged Stonechat were in Wryneck Plain, aside from Wood Pigeon, the first fledged birds of the year on site.
