14th April 2013

Plenty more migration action today (despite the very strong SW winds), with highlights including a Little Ringed Plover and a Green Sandpiper at East Lea, a Whimbrel, small numbers of Golden Plovers and Curlews and 30+ Lapwing overhead, a Yellow Wagtail and four Willow Warblers at the Dams (and two more Willow Warblers in Church Ravine), all three hirundines trickling through, and a huge thrush exodus at last light this evening – more to follow.
