Wheatear at Last

27th March

I accompanied Geoff Burton to Swalecliffe where we saw a spoonbill flying over towards Sheppey five minutes after getting out of the car.  A dozen sanderling were on the mud plus a few ringed plovers and turnstones. The rest of the morning was rather uneventful apart from 2 goldcrests in the churchyard.

I went to Reculver hoping to photograph SEOs but no luck although one appeared late afternoon but was badly placed for photos. At the 'green wall' c.25 corn buntings were a surprise and back at the oyster farm a wheatear was on the apron but didn't allow a close approach.
