A Cuckoo on Warren Point was a surprise on a day of few migrants with three House Martin and two Wheatear the only other arrivals noted. There was more movement in the estuary with c90 Whimbrel, 62 Dunlin, 17 Ringed Plover, 12 Bar-tailed Godwit and 12 Sanderling. Elsewhere a Great Northern Diver and 11 Sandwich Tern were offshore.

Ringing News: Two-colour ringed Whimbrel were noted today both ringed on passage in Wales. One of these birds, D63, was also on the Warren in April 2016, April 2017 & Aug 2017. It was also seen in Exmouth in April 2017 but hasn't been recorded anywhere else outside the Exe, a great account of migratory site fidelity. It was ringed at Llansantffraed, Cardigan Bay in May 2015.
