First Little Terns arrive

24th April 2016 – overcast/showers NNW1/2/3
Observations over the sea (0800-0900) produced the first 3 Little Terns of the year along with 100 Sandwich Tern, 90 Common Scoter, 9 Gannet, 8 Red-throated Diver, 3 Kittiwake and 3 Guillemot.
Grounded Migrants
Very little on offer due to the cold northerly airstream with just 4 Wheatear, 4 Willow Warbler and a White Wagtail logged.
Wildfowl and Waders
Waders included 11 Whimbrel, 6 Black-tailed Godwit and a Greenshank.
Two Merlin were the best of the rest.
