Monday 11th April

A male Pied Flycatcher around Dead Dolphin Wood and the Main Pond was the highlight, with other migrants including the earliest ever Lesser Whitethroat, the first Whitethroat of the year, 12 Willow Warbler, three Wheatear and two Blackcap. In the estuary there was no sign of the Kentish Plover with just five Dunlin, four Ringed and three Grey Plover present along with the Slavonian Grebe, 20+ Sandwich and two Common Tern. Elsewhere a Great Northern Diver was offshore, a Whimbrel flew over and a Moorhen chick was on the First Pond.
