Early (ish) walk down to Sherpa revealed my first Wheatear, 2 Common Sandpiper, an arrival of Sedge Warblers in song and chasing about already, several singing Reed Warblers, Swallows and Sand Martins in good numbers, several House Martins, and 2 or possibly even 3 Swifts.  What was probably a Yellow Wagtail flew away before I could be 100% certain. One Whimbrel. On Wrafton pond, the pair of Pochard remain.
