Warbler arrivals

April 21st - another morning visit over this Easter weekend.  The Dunlin was still present, but little else on the spit or over the lake.  I continued to walk around the lake to the southern railway bank, a favoured place for migrant warblers and was pleased to find my first Whitethroat of the year singing near to the meadow gate.  Mid way along the southern bank, a Garden Warbler was also new in and singing away, whilst a little further along a Lesser Whitethroat rattled away briefly to make up a nice trio of sylvias.

There are still a few more common migrants to see that will hopefully turn up over the next few days, but hopefully some scarcer ones will appear too and also waders, which seem to have been very thin on the ground so far this Spring.
