Tuesday 4th April

An evening visit saw the first Whimbrel of the year head east with seven Great Crested Grebe, six Sandwich Tern, Mediterranean Gull and a Red-throated Diver also offshore, two Wheatear on site and a Swallow overhead. 

A second Whimbrel was in the estuary at high tide along with 326 Oystercatcher, 74 Curlew, 39 Redshank, 23 Teal, 18 Grey Plover, 17 Turnstone, six Dark-bellied Brent Geese, six Dunlin, three Greenshank and two Bar-tailed Godwit.

Offsite an Osprey was watched fishing off Exmouth, before heading up the east side of the estuary.
