Walking down to Hope Gap the distinctive song of the Whitethroat was heard, and it was very quickly spotted in a hawthorn bush. It was a male and my first of the year. Not a bad start, but it soon went downhill with the only highlights in Hope Gap were 2 Shelduck flying over and circling a couple of times.
Around the coastguard cottages were 2 Firecrest and a Chiffchaff was heard calling.
