Monday 6th April

A fine early spring day saw the first notable arrival of migrants with 10 Wheatear,  nine Chiffchaff, eight Willow Warbler and a White Wagtail on site with a Red Kite, c30 Meadow Pipit, three Buzzard, two Swallow and the first House Martin of the year overhead. Elsewhere a drake Velvet Scoter was offshore, a Snipe was on the Main Pond and counts from the estuary included 121 Curlew, 32 Bar-tailed Godwit, 28 Turnstone, 14 Ringed and 12 Grey Plover, 11 Dunlin and the first Whimbrel of the year.

Wildlife News: Over 100 Warren Crocus were in flower in Greenland Lake and the warm weather brought out good numbers of Peacock and a Small Tortoiseshell.
