30th April 2018

Weather: N 3, 4/8 cloud, very good visibility

A very cold biting northerly wind greeted observers this morning so exception was not high.  However, with the final morning of the month being covered by Obs members that is another month of 100% of days covered by a small group of Obs stalwarts and friends.

The highlights of the morning were a nice count of 22 Little Terns feeding with other terns (40 Sandwich and 30 Common) off the West Hoyle sandbank as the tide began to flood.

A few Dunlin (60) appeared on the gutter edge as on the flood and were joined by a partial summer plumaged Grey Plover.

There was nothing of note around the gardens.

We now look forward to May with the usual anticipation and with coverage looking to remain high hopeful that the effort will continue to reap the rewards...
