23rd April

A fresh northerly wind this morning meant even fewer migrants on the land and less passage offshore today. Even so, seawatching was not without its interest with 6.25hrs of observation producing a Great Northern Diver west, a 'Blue' Fulmar, 26 Whimbrels, four Arctic Skuas, a very unusual sighting of a second-summer Pomarine Skua, four Great Skuas, 638 Common Terns east with a further 350 feeding at the Patch and a Black Tern.
Two Ring Ouzels and the highest day total of Swallows of the spring so far were about the best the land had to offer.

At least 18 Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
