Friday 17th April

It's been relatively quiet over the last couple of days by recent standards. The BLACK-TAILED GODWITS are still with us and indeed their number has now swelled to eight birds. A couple more COMMON TERNS were seen yesterday and Dave Doherty had the first WHITETHROAT of the year yesterday as well. A couple of YELLOW WAGTAILS flew over yesterday morning and Steve Lavington had another WHEATEAR as well. There have been between two LITTLE RINGED PLOVERS and 1 RINGED PLOVER with us for a couple of days, 1 to 3 OYSTERCATCHERS still and up to 5 SHELDUCK are still lingering. Mary MacDougall heard the CETTI'S WARBLER again so it's still with us.

I've been rather neglecting the fleur du jour section this year so to make amends
here's an Early Dog Violet hiding on the bank next to the allotments
I'm going to be away for a few days but do please keep sending me your sightings or post them to Going Birding. Don't find anything too good whilst I'm away though!
