Wet, Wet, Wet

9th April - I popped down first thing(ish) to see if the rain had grounded any migrants, but no such luck!

A Common Tern was on the end of the spit along with 2 Little Ringed Plovers.  2 Shelduck flew in and the lone male Wigeon remained.  11 Meadow Pipits were seen - a flock of 10 that alighted and fed on the spit for a few minutes before flying off west and a further single bird.  A flock of hirundines, about 50 birds, were feeding over the lake - mainly Sand Martins, but some Swallows and at least 1 House Martin.
