Another Spring Whinchat

Strong Easterlies but clear blue skies meant the river was pretty quiet at Barking Bay this morning bar some left over waders from the weekend including 8 Whimbrel, 2 Bar-wit, 2 Grey Plover and a single Ringed.

The 1st summer Mediterranean is still Knocking around a fine male Whinchat (my second this spring) was amongst the 8 Wheatears still present, and a fly over Hobby was new for the year.
