10th-11th May

While the weather has remained good throughout, its felt a little bit static on the migrant front as leftovers from last week moved on. Coverage was slightly reduced with 25% on 10th and 35% on 11th and with it came a thinning of passerine numbers with just a sprinkling of Warblers (a few of which were newly arrived though) over both dates and a couple each of Tree Pipits, Robins and Pied Flycatchers also of note. The Glossy Ibis was seen again on 11th, along with a pair of Garganey while wader numbers typically continue to build with 55 Knot, 163 Sanderlings, 118 Purple Sandpipers, 336 Turnstones and a Common Sandpiper also on the latter date.
