18th April

A White Stork which flew low over the power station before heading off in a north-westerly direction at 0955hrs was the obvious highlight of the day. Grounded migrants were fairly scarce again but did include our first Whinchat of the year, a Redstart in the Lighthouse Garden, a Ring Ouzel in the trapping area and two Bramblings at the Long Pits. A few birds also passed overhead including eight Yellow Wagtails, a Rock Pipit, 24 Goldfinches and two Siskins.

The sea was very quiet.

Eight Porpoises were feeding offshore and a Brown Hare and a Weasel were seen in the land.
