21.04.21 Evening Bar-tailed Godwit

An overall bright day with an increasing NE wind by sunset.

The highlight today was a brilliant hour long seawatch shortly before sunset where 418 Bar-tailed Godwit passed east as the sun was setting. Otherwise it was fairly quiet on the headland this morning where single female Wheatear and Common Redstart were the passerine highlights along with 5 Willow Warbler.

A quick afternoon visit to West Rise where around 200 hirundine were present, a Little ringed Plover and 6 Yellow Wagtail were the highlight.
