      A combined list of at least 78 species for the 25 participants.

      Great company.

      Highlights included migrant Tree Pipit (early flyover), the season’s first Common Swift, all three hirundines, two Yellow Wagtails (one female showing distantly but well on ‘the flood’ ((A14))– another flyover) a Whinchat and circa six Wheatears.

      Also seen six White Wagtails, three or four Lesser Whitethroats, a Whimbrel, a soaring Peregrine, a Curlew displaying over the marsh, two late Goldeneye (Freeman’s Pools (A2)) and much more.

      Next field meeting Heysham Head May 8th–please see meetings page.
