Not feeling top of the world today but managed the South end of ARC for 20 minutes. Immediately saw a Juv Little Gull on the shore line for a few minutes before a fly through Sparrowhawk sent every thing into the air.
After all had returned to normal after the Sparrow Hawk scare spotted a Ringed Plover, happily the scope was in the boot so out it came and recorded my first Little Ringed Plover of 2013 ( 149) .
Hirundine numbers seemed to be down today compared with other days but may be due to the high winds. A Cormorant that swallowed a fish too big for his gullet gave a few minutes of tension as it tried hard to make it slide down and eventually won.
Lots of Teal but none could be turned into GW Teal.
