15th May

Nice again, bright and sunny but with a bit of a chilly SE breeze; 2 Dotterel at The Lighthouse including a lovely looking, bright female were the highlight of the day.   Other birds included 3 Garganey, single Sparrowhawk and Kestrel, Greenshank and Wood Sandpiper together on Ancum, 2 House Martins, a Tree Pipit, a Robin, a male Whinchat at The Mill (the second of the spring), 8 Sedge Warblers, a Whitethroat, 3 Chiffchaff, 2 Willow Warblers, a Jackdaw, 3 Carrion Crows, 10 Hooded Crows, 3 Tree Sparrows at the Obs (also the second record of the spring), a Goldfinch at Holland and a very bright male Common Redpoll at the Obs.
