Tetney 09/04/17

Hottest day of the year with the temperature reaching a high of around 21°C. Sunny all day but spoilt by the strength of the wind which soon increased to a very blustery F5 SW.
A bit of a half-hearted attempt today as my health hasn't been up to scratch. Also the beach held at least 3 (possibly 5) nudists, which always makes for uncomfortable birding!

Highlights: Common Buzzard, 2 Wheatear, Yellow Wagtail NW (1st of the spring), 2 alba wagtail NW, 3 Swallow NW, 2 Sand Martin E, 3 Fieldfare, Blackcap, 2 Willow Warbler, 4 Chiffchaff and a Goldcrest.

One patch year tick today: Yellow Wagtail
2017 patch total: 122

Wheatears are no longer being encountered as single birds
