Kestrel, Carr Naze (Mark Pearson)

The quiet, blue-skied warm period continues, with a Tree Pipit briefly in Top Scrub this morning the pick of today’s sightings, where there were five Large Red Damselflies. On 5th, a Firecrest in Top Scrub was the fourth or fifth of the spring (an unusually high return), while 320 Herring Gulls were on the Brigg and a Red-breasted Merganser and a Whimbrel went south at the Gap, where there was also a single Wheatear.
