17th April

Bird of the day was a very brief stopping second-winter Iceland Gull at the Patch where several Mediterranean Gulls and a Black Tern were also present. Seawatching for the most part was very poor but 24 Whimbrels and a Great Skua flew east during the day.

It was pretty quiet on the land with most migrants seemingly lingering from recent days but did include a singing Firecrest, a Coal Tit, the first Reed Warbler of the year, two Ring Ouzels, a Redstart and ten Wheatears
A few bits also passed overhead including 12 Swallows, six Yellow Wagtails and a Rock Pipit.

At least eight Porpoises were feeding offshore again.
