12th May 2018

A busier day locally with a Marsh Harrier and two Yellow Wagtails over Top Scrub, a Hobby over Primrose Valley, a pair of Garganey, five Little Terns and 294 Sandwich Terns south at the Brigg, a Bar-tailed Godwit and a Red-breasted Merganser north there, and five acredula-type Willow Warblers and a Reed Warbler among a good cast of arrival trapped and ringed in Top Scrub. 

10th saw single Whimbrel and Wheatear on Carr naze, while on 9th a minimum of three Hobbys were in the area as well as the first double figure count of Swifts (over the town), two Wheatears on Carr Naze, and a Yellow Wagtail and a four-spotted Chaser at the Tip.
