Sunday 29th April

The first Whinchat of the year in Greenland Lake was the highlight following a blank Spring in 2017, but the resident Stonechat took a disliking to the bird and it soon moved on. Other migrants included a Hobby in off the sea around 4pm, a good count of 16 Wheatear andfour Swift overhead but little else.  

Elsewhere single Great Northern and Red-throated Diver were offshore with two Eider and just seven Sandwich Tern. Counts from the estuary included 15 Whimbrel, 14 Ringed and 12 Grey Plover, 13 Sanderling, five Dunlin and five Bar-tailed Godwit.
