20th May

As to be expected with the light winds and clear skies overnight, a mass clear out of migrants left little in comparison to recent days. A glaucous gull appeared on the dead dolphin in Nouster Bay, a new wood warbler was seen at Ancum plus 2 still at Gretchen and a respectable count of 247 ringed plover. 3 jackdaw were seen and other leftovers included a curlew & common sandpiper, 3 sand martin, 13 house martin, 6 tree pipit, 2 robin, 2 redstart, 2 lesser whitethroat, 10 whitethroat, 10 garden warbler, 1 blackcap, 6 chiffchaff, 2 willow warbler, 2 spotted flycatcher, a chaffinch and a sparrowhawk.
