First Sedge Warbler arrives

14th April 2011 – overcast/mizzle V1/2
Just small numbers of Red-throated Diver, Gannet, Common Scoter and Sandwich Tern were visible through the gloom.
Grounded Migrants
Although the first Sedge Warbler of the year appeared amongst 12 Wheatear, 3 Blackcap, 3 Willow Warbler and a noticeable influx of Linnet and Goldfinch sightings were rather disappointing with the weather conditions appearing favourable for a fall.
Wildfowl and Waders
At least 40 pale-bellied Brent Goose and 2 Pink-footed Goose continue to linger.
