Ben Miller Update - Tues 14 April

Startops/Marsworth - Had the place to myself early am, a very pleasant contrast to yesterday afternoon! 1 adult winter LITTLE GULL on Marsworth with 10 Common Terns (poor phone-scoped pic attached). 2 OYSTERCATCHERS together on the causeway were presumably migrants rather than local birds; both flew off just before 7am and were later seen over Wilstone (RH). 2 Cetti's and 1 Sedge Warbler singing from the reedbed.

Pitstone Industrial Estate - 3 Ringed Plovers, 1 Little Ringed Plover

College Lake - Quiet other than the usuals; 2 Oystercatchers, 4+ Redshank, 1 Common Snipe, 1 Common Tern.
