Another good day of visible migration. Highlight was a Knot, the first record for April and only the 3rd spring record which came down on Hundred Acre. Other migrants included 5 Dunlin, 26 Meadow Pipit, 2 Siskin, 4 Wheatear, 5 Yellow Wagtail, 25+ House Martin, 30+ Swallow, 10 Sand Martin and the other birders saw White Wagtail, Ruff and 2 Ringed Plover. Looks like there has been an influx of Snipe with 30+ on site. Also 7 Green Sandpiper, 2 Redshank, 2 Great Crested Grebe and 3 Shelduck. Still a few ducks about including 30+ Teal and 10 Gadwall.
