Tuesday 11th April 2017

All the major highlights of the day came from the Long Nab area where initially a Hooded Crow was seen flying north just behind the Obs at 08.46. Then the 17 Shore Larks reappeared again in the 1st to 3rd fields north of the Obs and then at 12.26 a 2cy Glaucous Gull circled and departed to the north. Also moving north off the Nab today were a ♂ Eider, 29 Common Scoter and a Red-throated Diver plus 12 Meadow Pipits and 6 Sand Martins (and 3 south).

On Johnson’s Marsh today the ♂ Garganey was still present and if there tomorrow it will move into its fourth week at this location, also here were a Wigeon, 6 Teal, a Common Snipe and a Jack Snipe.

Potter Brompton Carr held a Redshank, 4 Wigeon, 22 Teal and 4 Egyptian Geese and at Knipe Point, Osgodby a House Martin flew north around 10.15.

The following photos were all taken at Long Nab today by Nick Addey so my thanks to him for letting me use them here.
