Wednesday 28th April

The rarest sighting of the day was rain, the first for several weeks; this failed to produce a hoped for fall of migrants but did see an arrival of terns and waders. Offshore the first five Little Tern of the year were seen intermittently with 108 Sandwich and two Common Tern and a Great Northern Diver also present.

Counts from the estuary included 111 Dunlin, 83 Whimbrel, 40 Bar-tailed Godwit, 20 Knot, 20 Grey and 15 Ringed Plover, 15 Sanderling, 10 Turnstone and a Pale-bellied Brent Goose. Elsewhere 47 Swallow and a Swift were overhead and a single Wheatear was in the Bight.
