Thursday 5th May
I went for a mid morning run today around the patch and found things pretty similar to the last few days. The GREENSHANK was still frequenting the North Shore and 4 COMMON SANDPIPERS had flown in to join it. The 2 OYSTERCATCHERS were still about and a RED KITE was quartering slowly over the Meadow. Richard Foster later found a couple of DUNLIN, 2 golden plover, 6 COMMON TERNS and 5 YELLOW WAGTAILS. In Burgess Field I was pleased to find a LESSER WHITETHROAT singing half way along the western hedge and there seemed to be garden warblers everywhere or perhaps it was the same one following me about!
