April 9th.

Kittiwake (adult) ........on the main pool.

A Dark-bellied Brent Goose at 9-15 flying north over the pool , also an adult Kittiwake mid-morning (K Wimbush). A visit at 17-00 to see if the Kittiwake was still present and to my suprise it was still their, it was the only Gull on the pool. It was sat on the water right in the middle and in good light but just to far for any decent images.It flew towards the eastern end giving Dave and myself a bit of a chance for photography. Also present 1 Common Sandpiper by the sailing club, 1 White Wagtail on the southern shore, and a few House Martins amongst a good number of Swallows. 3 Blackcaps were heard along with 2 Chiffchaff and 2 R L Partridge in the ploughed field. Also noted Grey Wagtail and 4 Gadwall. (S Seal, D Hutton). 2 Common Sands were seen earlier in the day by (T Perrins).
