No harm in looking!!Just bear in mind that many won't be back in the UK yet.
Recently-reported coastal birds have got to go somewhere!!
And who know what else you may see.
Good luck
Russ

Yes, no harm in getting out and looking, but better chances for sure from third week in May onward! Reported passing through Gibraltar from mid-April.
Good luck, Brian
