Thurlestone Bay

Apologies for the blank post -my brain & fingers were working against each other !

Brisk ENE wind this morning- main interest were the Waders- difficult to know how many are new arrivals and which are still resting up - usually at this time of the year they fly straight through.

Whimbrel- 170, Bar Tailed Godwit- 45, 2 Grey Plover ( our first of the year ), 1 Dunlin.
On the sea were 2 Great Crested Grebe ( unusual here in May ) a Great Northern Diver 6 Common Scoter , 2 Sandwich Tern.

First big passage of House Martin - 125 + north in 2 hrs.

Bob B had a Lesser Redpoll near the sewage works
