28th April 2011

A very similar morning to yesterday with the addition of at least 5 Willow Warblers in the paddocks at dawn. Still no Wheatears and only a few Goldfinches, a single White Wagtail and passing Swallows that could be classed as migrants. Many Dunlin were flocking as the tide flooded, competing for resting places with 5 Whimbrel on the whaleback and other exposed rocks (above).A sea watch produced 3 Gannets, 32 Sandwich Terns, 400 + Common Scoter out by the wind farm and the male again close to the island. Ringed:- 5 Willow Warblers. (BSB,DB,JE,CJ,CDT,PT,NDW,SRW) [347-35] photo CJ
