Friday 7th May

A Garden Warbler in Dead Dolphin Wood was one of the few fresh migrants on site with the Lesser Whitethroat still present and a Wheatear on the Golf Course. 

Counts from the estuary included 71 Dunlin, 21 Sanderling, 19 Ringed and a Grey Plover, 14 Whimbrel, seven Bar-tailed Godwit, four Turnstone and a Knot. Elsewhere just five Sandwich Tern were offshore. 

Wildlife News: Two new hoverflies for the Recording Area were found today both around the Crocus Compound; Buff-tailed Bear Hoverfly Croirhina floccosa and Big-thighed Pipiza Pipiza austriaca.
