A look over the racecourse mid-morning produced my first patch Whinchats of the year - a female and what looked like a juvenile, though views were somewhat distant. Several groups of Linnets were scattered about totalling 95 birds, and a Sand Martin associating with c.50 Swallows was unexpected.

A neap tide was forecast so Flow Point was largely devoid of birds, with the exception of a (the?) Wheatear. Most of the 370 Oystercatchers were instead on the Salty, joined by 2 Dunlin and 10 Sandwich Terns.
