Started out today at the Academy pools, a very easy to forget visit..nowt really showed.
Then headed to Whitburn- 5 Bar tailed Godwits and 20 Sanderling in the small bay area. Then my first Swallow of the year flew over.! Quickly followed by another 2 along the cliffs here.
Trow this afternoon- 6 Wheatears(5 males) in the two bays here and 5 Sandwich terns off Sandhaven beach.
This is the only female Wheatear Ive seen so far this year.
18 Turnstones and 6 Purple sandpipers in the 2nd bay. Probably the pier birds as it seemed a little rough on the south side of the pier today.
