Coast and New Forest (13/04/2013)

First stop was Lower Pennington Lane.

The back path to Keyhaven saw first Whitethroat and Reed Warbler of the year.   Also had cracking views of a Cetti's Warbler.

On the coastal side had a Spotted Redshank on Keyhaven Lagoon.

Four birds high over the Isle of Wight could have been Arctic Skuas but couldn't positively identify them.

7 White Wagtails on the in-fill site were good and there was a small passage of Swallows.

I then went to the New Forest (Beaulieu Road Station, Bolderwood and north New Forest).

At least 3 Redstarts at Beaulieu Road Station and eventually an elusive Cuckoo.  I heard Dartford Warbler but didn't see it.

No sign of the Tawny Owl at is roost tree.

Finally had at least one Goshawk from a viewpoint.
