10th May 2010

Hardly any wind first thing brought hardly any birds! The wind then picked up to a brisk cold easterly which brought in some Swifts and a few Swallows.

The highlight of the morning was a Common Sandpiper at the South End but other 'strange' waders included the semi-resident Oystercatcher with the deformed downcurved bill (see right).

Whimbrels were again present in small numbers (see left) and the passage of Ringed Plover and Dunlin continued.

Finally, of note was the ship below seen bringing in the blades for one of the windmills for the offshore windfarm.
