26th April

The cold north by west wind continues and even brought snow and hail with it today. Offshore, ten Whimbrel and a couple of Great Skuas flew through and what was presumably the local Tundra Bean Goose flew around again. Very quiet on the land with just a handful of Chiffchaffs and a Ring Ouzel in the bushes and a couple of Yellow Wagtails overhead.

At least seven Porpoises were feeding offshore.
