Tuesday 12th April

Migration was ongoing but more birds left than arrived with just two Willow Warbler but three Whitethroat and some of the nine Chiffchaff were new in. Overhead the first Tree Pipit and Yellow Wagtail flew through with three Chaffinch and single Rook and Siskin. Elsewhere six Whimbrel, three Sanderling, two Grey Plover, a Knot, a Dunlin, c20 Sandwich Tern and the Slavonian Grebe were in the estuary, a Short-eared Owl flew in from Starcross and landed on Warren Point and an Osprey was fishing in the Bight around 11.45 and caught a small fish before briefly perching on a post in front of the hide and then heading upriver.
