23rd April 2018

The year’s first Common Swift was hawking over the town at dusk, while a Red Kite went south at Hunmanby Gap and c12 Wheatears were scattered across the area. White Wagtails went south at Reighton Sands and dropped into East Lea, the latter site also hosting the Greenshank and a female Pochard. The male Pochard remained with the Tufted Duck flock at the Dams, where two Common Sandpipers were also present.
