Dan here with a quick post listing the day's highlights that Jon and myself mustered in separate visits.
Two or three Little Ringed Plovers were seen, the year's first Sedge Warbler was having an intermittent chatter deep inside a hedge, the first House Martin was over Freeman's Pools amid the strongest Swallow passage so far this spring (at least 40 noted).
Three Lesser Whitethroats were in song and a Black-tailed Godwit was feeding at the Wildfowlers Pools. A minimum of 18 White Wagtails were at the flood. Two Wheatears and 3 Pinkfeet were on the marsh.
