Lade - 0630hrs - cool, cloudy, nw 4 - A quick look over the pits yielded very little in the chilly, blustery conditions apart from 50 House Martins and a Grey Plover overhead calling.
Burrowes - Quite a few long-faced twitchers who`d been here since first light looking for the Semi-p, of which there was no sign. However, there remained a decent spread of waders including 80 Golden Plover, 15 Dunlin, 10 Ringed Plover, 3 Snipe, 2 Ruff, Greenshank, Barwit, Curlew Sandpiper and Little Stint. Up to 20 Pintail were new in, plus more Wigeon, a Black-necked Grebe, Sparrowhawk and a Black Tern. From the access road 2 Hobbies sat slumped on the shingle looking pretty miserable due to the low temperature.
ARC - Mostly Lapwing here, plus 10 Golden Plovers, 3 Blackwits, Dunlin and Ringed Plover. Black-necked Grebe and Garganey amongst the regular wildfowl and all three hirundines over the water.
