19th April

With the wind dropping overnight and some cloud cover this morning there was a decent arrival of migrants on the land. Willow Warblers dominated the arrival but other bits and pieces included two "Continental" Coal Tits, 15 Blackcaps, the first Garden Warbler of the year, two Redstarts and a Ring Ouzel in the bushes and 12 Yellow Wagtails overhead.

The sea was very quiet although several hours of watching eventually produced two Grey Plovers, 19 Whimbrels, two Arctic Skuas and a Little Tern passing east.

A Stoat was seen, a Grizzled Skipper was seen in the trapping area and the Common Dog-violets are starting to put on a pretty good display of colour.
