31st March

After a slow trickle of migrants over the last few weeks, this morning saw the site surprisingly full of migrants. The strong wind and rain had brought down several hundred hirundines including 2 House Martins. Swallows numbered around 100 whilst Sand Martins numbered over 300. A mixed group of Wagtails and pipits were mobile along the north shore of the main pool, with 1 male Yellow wagtail, 2 White Wagtail and 3 Meadow pipits among the 25+ Pied Wags. 2 Blackcaps were also new arrivals, whist Gadwall numbers had decreased to 5 birds.
