Saturday 16th April

Few highlights to report on a day when the north-westerly winds cancelled out any warmth during the occasional sunny periods. At least 37 Whimbrel flew in off the sea during the day along with three Bar-tailed Godwit, two Canada Geese, a Buzzard and a first summer Mediterranean Gull. Also offshore 19 Sandwich and three Common Tern. Elsewhere four Sanderling and a Dunlin were on the beach, at least five Wheatear were on site and 11 Swallow, six House and three Sand Martin flew through.
