Wednesday 18th April

Another day of Pale-bellied Brent Goose migration with 100+ passing south or arriving in off the sea during the morning and a flock of 26 still present in the estuary in the evening. One flock took 29 minutes to arrive having earlier past Seaton in east Devon. Other migrants were however thin on the ground with just five Swallow, four Wheatear and single Blackcap and Willow Warbler.

Elsewhere counts from the estuary included 64 Turnstone, 19 Sanderling, 16 Redshank, 14 Grey Plover, nine Whimbrel and a Dunlin  whilst three Red-throated Diver and an Eider were offshore.
