Bank Vole, Primrose Valley (Mark Pearson)

Bank Vole, Primrose Valley (Mark Pearson)

A quiet couple of days with very little of note migration-wise. At the Dams, a couple each of Yellow Wagtail and Shelduck remain along with six Teal and a Common Sandpiper, while a male White Wagtail was briefly at East Lea. The sea remains very quiet with a trickle of Sandwich Terns and good numbers of Puffins the only noteworthy records. Yesterday, a southbound passage of four Common Buzzards over East Lea was the highlight.
