Thursday 14th April

Despite seemingly ideal conditions migrants were in short supply with three Blackcap, two Willow Warbler, two Whitethroat and a Wheatear on site and eight Swallow through. At least eight Chiffchaff were also present including a bird collecting nesting material near the First Pond. Elsewhere just four Turnstone, three Dunlin and three Ringed Plover were in the Bight on the rising tide, a late Snipe was still at the Main Pond and 21 Whimbrel flew in off mid-morning, before heading up estuary.

Wildlife News: In the warm conditions a Sand Lizard was on the Dune Ridge and lots of Sand Crocus were in flower.
