Little And Not Very Often....

....but it was good to see the hirundines showing some sign of a return, with House Martins seen at River Winds, and Swallows at Conder Green Farm, Gardners Farm on Moss Lane, and Bank Houses at Cockersand, though not a double figure in total.

Six Avocet were seen as four on Conder Pool and two in the creeks. A Whitethroat seen from the coastal path, and 22 Black-tailed Godwit downstream from the iron bridge. I found my first Cockersand Wheatear, and having deserted the fields around Abbey Farm and numbering at least 500 during April, 12 Golden Plover appeared to be the last remaining remnants in flight over Lighthouse Cottage.

Thanks to Brain Rafferty for his Whimbrel header image, discovered coming to roost at the new Grimsargh Wetlands.
