25 April 2010

A more overcast day today, until late afternoon. Tim saw a Woodlark in the N Dunes this morning, and presumably the same one was later independently found again by Pete further south. Colin, Tim and I looked for it again but dipped. Evidently though there had been a fall of Wheatears, with about 20 flicking about in a small patch of the N Dunes just below the Warren. There was also a Sedge Warbler near the Chalet Park and Pete had a Hobby as he was digging up Rhododendrons. Tim saw the year's first Little Terns yesterday, and some Bar-tailed Godwits. Sean

Also seen today were single Black Redstarts in the South Dunes and the Village, a Ring Ouzel in the South Dunes and six Yellow Wagtails down Low Road. Tim also found a Tree Pipit on the N Dunes & 3 Lesser Whitethroats on the S Dunes bank. Peter
