21st April

With strong NE winds again most of the interest was offshore. Two Pomarine Skuas passed through at 1315hrs but a party of nine tracked along the Sussex coastline failed to appear. Bar-tailed Godwits and Whimbrels passed throughout the day with a peak in the afternoon and final totals of 756 and 200 respectively. A couple of parties, 22 birds, of Little Gulls also flew east whilst other bits included seven Shovelers, 13 Red-breasted Mergansers, two Black-throated Divers, 12 Grey Plovers, four Knot, a Great Skua and a steady trickle of Sandwich and Common Terns. A Manx Shearwater flew west.

Very little to report from the land.

At least 18 Porpoises were feeding offshore during the afternoon.
