Brandon - 26/04/09

An early but unexpected frosty start to my visit today and a short post too as not much has changed species wise from yesterdays visit, plus I really need to catch up on my sleep and do some chores.
An increase in the Plover population for a short while this morning with 4 Little Ringed Plover and 3 Ringed Plover showing. In addition, more Common Terns had arrived, totalling 8 and a Common Sandpiper was seen in front of the Baldwin hide. While in the Teal Hide a Cuckoo flew westerly while calling. The highlight of the day was my first Hobby of the year, seen from the Main Hide, a second followed shortly after.
