2nd May 2014

Weather: SE-variable-2. Cool and overcast warming later.

The male Blue headed type Wagtail was again in the Lighthouse paddocks along with 6 Yellow wagtail and 4 Wheatear. A Whinchat was also to be found in the coastal scrub. The usual warblers could be found down Lingham Lane although there were no sign of any singing Grasshopper warbler today. A Cuckoo was singing on and off all morning at various points near the Lighthouse and a Swift flew through mid morning.

Offshore 83 Great crested Grebe were counted along with 2 Gannet, 1 Scaup, 4 Common Scoter, 3 Red throated Diver, 1 Common tern and several Sandwich Tern. A Short eared Owl looked surprised to find itself sitting on an offshore sandbar before it quickly flew inland having been moved on by the advancing tide.
