27th April - Sightings

Bassett North - 2 Common Cranes circling 3.30 to 3.35pm then flew East (P Sofley, Bobby D). Also Whimbrel and Bar-Tailed Godwit through to South early afternoon. Greenshank, 2 Ruff, Hobby, 3 Yellow Wagtail North Pit area(P Sofley et al) 2 Ruff, 2 Wigeon (m,f) late evening (TP)
Bassett South - Short-Eared Owl, 2 Wheatear (J Harris)
Kingsbury - Common Sand Cliff Pool (Bobby D) Also Whimbrel briefly (per Bobby D) Grasshopper Warbler Richard's Meadow this evening (W Egmont)
Middleton - Wood Warbler in private area (J Harris)

All recent Barwit sightings have been of a moulting adult so could easily relate to the same bird. Where it spends most of its time is a mystery! Also of interest the two parties of two Ruff at Ladywalk and Bassett refer to different birds (per P Sofley)
