Seaforth NR,
 A great selection of birds on this Good Friday. A stonking male whinchat was on the long bank with the 20 wheatears and 30 alba wags,and a couple of yellow wags also added to the show. Still a flock of 2000 oystercatchers, always an impressive sight as they take flight. House martins were collecting mud from the pool to make their des res in the nearby suburbs. Lesser whitethroat, whitethroat, blackcap and willow warbler were on site. 4 little gulls were over the marina and 50 arctic terns flew in and out again. Common terns were up to 28 and 15 sandwich terns also
3 lrp's , a spangley female ruff, 2 common sandpipers, 12 whimbrel flew over, 3 knot, 2 turnstone and a few dunlin. A red admiral and brimstone today.
