Plym Estuary & Saltram

A thorough look around this morning. A modest passage of hirundines with 38 Swallows, and 4 House Martins heading NW. Also, 3 Swallows hanging around, my first Whimbrel of the year here, Common Sandpiper, 2 pairs of Mallard with (12 and 9) ducklings, Stock Dove (4), Sparrowhawk and  Great Spotted Woodpecker (2).

As I arrived home (Mount Gould) a Ring-necked Parakeet flew over my house. Hot on the heels of Yellow-browed Warbler, this makes 110 species for the garden (in, over or from) since 1990.
