Out and about

Today Deer Park: 7 Robin, 12 Blackbird and a Goldcrest were new in. 2 Turnstone flying over. Marloes mere: 3 Willow warblers, 4 Blackbirds and 9 Robin. 4 Curlew. 32 Mallard, 11 Teal and 2 Shoveler. Gann: 26 Dunlin, 6 Ringed plover, Turnstone and Common sandpiper. Lots of gulls this morning many feeding in stubble fields and coming in to bathe. 70 GBB Inc 3 Skokholm birds W:157, W:074 and W:022. Bumped into Allan H on the airfield yesterday, we were both hoping for a Dotterel or something better but best we could do were a couple of Wheatears and a Curlew. Allan had the Curlew sandpiper at the Gann earlier.
