Redstart – 19th April

This morning two Reed Warblers were singing from the Slurry Lagoon reed bed, two Whitethroats and a Lesser Whitethroat were also singing. A Common Tern was flying around the tern platforms but left after a short while. On the Causeway a female Redstart was seen catching insects from the fencing and, near the Slurry Lagoon dry end, a male Redstart was also seen. PS.

In the Afternoon a male Redstart was found on the Causeway bank, two Yellow Wagtails and nine Wheatears were in the field beyond the Wader Scrape and four Common Terns were on the tern platforms. JMD.
