Saturday saw a flock of 6 ARCTIC TERNS on Wilstone - the first of the year; trhe pair of GARGANEY were also still present, feeding with Teal off of the Drayton Bank trees. As I stood with Dave Hutchinson and Ted Reed, a wave of hirundines swept east, involving 76 Sand Martin, 2 House Martin and 8 Barn Swallow.

Work commitments kept me away all day Sunday but Dave, Steve & Ian had Common Sandpiper, 4 Common Terns, Yellow Wagtail and the GARGANEY pair, Ian finding 2 NORTHERN WHEATEAR on the Dry Canal manure pile late afternoon.
