Braunton

Pochard still on Wrafton Pond today, and at least 2 Gadwall at Sherpa. The Spotted Flycatcher we didn't catch in the reserve yesterday was still there today, not seen one in there before. This evening at Sherpa, hundreds of Sand Martins, late or waiting for water levels to subside before breeding? A few Swallows and Swifts and a single Yellow Wagtail. 3 Canada goslings (yesterday). Two Whimbrel on Braunton Pill.
Late news from 1st May - Wood Sandpiper where the Stilts were, but it flew and no further sign.
Had a few screaming Swifts around my house today - lovely.
