Friday 22nd April

A single Willow Warbler was the only potential passerine migrant early morning, but wader passage was more obvious and varied. Counts from the estuary included 52+ Whimbrel, 35 Dunlin, 19 Turnstone, two Bar-tailed Godwit, two Grey Plover and two Knot, with 11 Black-tailed Godwit and a Greenshank flying in off and the first three Common Sandpiper of the year on the seawall. Elsewhere a Little Tern was offshore in the evening, a single Swift flew through and a drake Gadwall was on the mudflats.
