Sunday 13th May

The highlight was a total of 10 Red Kite over the recording area, two that drifted over from the Easdon Ridge before heading back west at 10am and a dispersed group of eight birds that came in from the east circled very high in a thermal and headed off WSW at 11.30am. Also passing overhead 78 Swallow, seven House Martin, four Swift and a Grey Heron.  

Other migrants were limited to a single Wheatear on Warren Point and new single Chiffchaff and Whitethroat. Elsewhere the two Eider, two Great Northern and a Red-throated Diver were offshore and counts from the estuary included 32 Whimbrel, 21 Dunlin, six Sanderling and a Ringed Plover.

Wildlife News: The first Small White and Azure Damselfly of the year were on the wing.
