Turtles On The Marsh

Another cold day with frequent heavy showers blown in on a northerly wind. First thing at The Point not a migrant to be found not surprising considering the weather.
At the ARC Pit and New Diggings plenty of Swifts and Swallows with a few House and Sand Martins, 2 Cuckoo's, a Hobby and a few Reed, Sedge and Cetti's Warblers singing. Also a Spotted Flycatcher in the Willow trail per BP.
On Burrowes from Dennis's hide 2 first summer Little Gulls and more Swifts and Hirundines with a Hobby in attendance
This afternoon out on Romney Marsh 8 Turtle Doves at 4 locations, several Tree Sparrows at 2 locations, 4 Marsh Harriers and 4 Yellowhammers. Lets hope the coming long weekend brings some warmer weather and some full days birding.
