13th April 2019

Weather: SE force 3, cold wind
Another clear chilly start to the day and the early ebbing tide saw 122 Curlew feeding on the eastern side of the gutter along with flocks of Redshank and a few Grey Plover. Migrants were sparse today with a single phyllosc, a male Blackcap ringed,
also small numbers of finches including Siskin & Redpoll, a handful of White Wagtails and Meadow Pipits also moved through. Three males and two females Eider fed around the North end with a single Common Scoter and four Sandwich Terns flew West. Good numbers of our Short tailed field voles have been observed recently and a few Small Tortoiseshell and Peacock butterflies have braved the easterly chill.
Ringed: 1 Blackcap     [ 162-18 ]
