Wood Sandpiper drops in

4th May 2011 – bright and sunny SE3/4
A rather disappointingly uneventful morning over the sea (0730-0830) with just small numbers of Sandwich Tern, Gannet, Red-throated Diver and Common Scoter logged.
Grounded Migrants
Limited to a handful of Wheatear, Whitethroat, Willow Warbler and Chiffchaff.
Diurnal Migration
The trickle of Swallow continues.
Wildfowl and Waders
A Wood Sandpiper was the highlight of the day and additional waders included: 1000 Sanderling and 7 Whimbrel.
