Also a noticeable 'fall' of Chiffchaffs- c.20 birds around the campsite. On the pool itself; m +f little grebe, 1 m Pochard, 4 Shoveler 1 male Teal, usual gulls plus 1 Gbb gull,  and 1 v smart looking spring male White wagtail amongst the Pieds.

Nearly forgot- c. 30 sand martin and at least 4 Swallow.

A cold Par Beach Pool at 4pm today hosted about c50 Sand Martins some feeding close to the edge of the pool. It didn’t make them any easier to photograph though. Also two Swallows, one Pochard and 6 Tufted Duck, plus the usual Geese, gulls and Ducks.

Thank you for the report and photographs Andy. Sorry about the Gremlins have set in and it is a little unstable at the moment

I visited Par Beach this afternoon and saw about a dozen Sand Martins skimming over the pond. They`ve been around for a few days now, but today they`d been joined by a Swallow, my first of the year.
