25th April

The cold weather continues and is actually looking set for a good few days yet. There was a very small arrival of migrants on the land with two Snipe, ten Chiffchaffs, nine Willow Warblers and eight Blackcaps whilst a fly-through Hobby was new for the year. 

There were at least three fledged Ravens at the Power Station. 

A total of eight hours of seawatching produced just 285 Brent Geese, a Great Northern Diver, a Manx Shearwater, eight Great Skuas, a Little Gull and three Mediterranean Gulls of interest.

The sea also produced the mammalian highlight of the day with a party of three White-beaked Dolphins showing near the Bouy for a short time during the morning.  Five Porpoises were also seen.
