16th April

Two Black Terns feeding at the Patch and four Ring Ouzels around the Desert were about the best on offer on a pretty quiet day. Other bits and pieces included a single Great Skua flying east, five Mediterranean Gulls offshore, two Yellow Wagtails and two Redpolls overhead and an increase in Wheatear numbers with 19 seen.

At least 12 Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
