Tufted Duck Migration

On Wednesday, there were 11 Tufted Duck on Decoy. However, about a month ago there were none at all. Since then though, I've made counts of four, five and seven, so I expect these are birds stopping off on migration.

Today, there was one singing Willow Warbler in Hackney Marshes, half a dozen hirundines in the distance above Rackerhayes, and still absolutely nothing in the way of birds on the racecourse, however there was one Brimstone butterfly which was nice.

At Passage House there were 20 Redshank, two Greenshank, three Common Sandpipers and a Ringed Plover.

Not quite the Little Ringed Plover I was hoping for.
