Thursday 16th April

Three days of coastal fog finally lifted and with the sunshine there was a small arrival of migrants through the day with the first two Whitethroat, a Wheatear and four Willow Warbler on site and the first Yellow Wagtail and Common Sandpiper of the year overhead with 13 Swallow and a late Siskin. Counts from the estuary included 34 Dunlin, 26 Redshank, 15 Whimbrel, 11 Bar-tailed Godwit, nine Grey Plover, seven Sanderling and a Knot. Elsewhere the Slavonian Grebe was off Cockwood and a Snipe was on the Golf Course.
