At last a Sand Martin!

29th March - still little change, but I watched a Redshank fly on to the spit at 9am and 3 Shelduck, a pair plus a further male, were also present.  No sign of any LRPs though.

At last, certainly later than I would expect, 2 Sand Martins appeared fairly high up over the eastern side of the lake.  I watched them for a few minutes before they departed.

I noted an adult Lesser Black-backed Gull at the back of the spit with a dark blue darvic ring with orange lettering, which was possibly 'GEY' seen previously, but there was no chance of reading it in the heat haze.
