My first swallow of the year bombed over Darter Pool at approx. 6.40pm and a surprise came in the shape of a 1stw kittiwake over the stubble fields. It headed off over Dawson's Bank in the direction of the marsh.
Ross's goose still on the marsh with c.440 pinkfeet & the whoopers this evening. The gadwall pair had moved on to the Wildfowlers' Pools where there were also 2 little egret.
Pair of little ringed plover seen at Freeman' s Pools yesterday by Pete Crooks but I couldn't find any this evening. They bred successfully at the site last year, so hopefully we'll be in for a repeat performance.
