20th April

A clear and sunny day but with a strong and increasing, cold easterly wind making conditions difficult. A total of 6.5hrs of seawatching resulted in just 14 Shovelers, four Red-breasted Mergansers, a Black-throated Diver, a Manx Shearwater, 39 Whimbrels, 35 Bar-tailed Godwits, two Arctic Skuas, three Great Skuas and a Little Tern of interest.

Most of the "migrant"  birds on the land actually seemed to be territory-holding although two Coal Tits and a Ring Ouzel were seen in the bushes and 15 Swallows, a House Martin and a Yellow Wagtail flew through.

A couple of Porpoise were seen although viewing conditions were far from ideal.
