29th April

A pretty quiet day with just a trickle of birds offshore and not a great deal on the land. Two Hobbies came in off the sea in the morning and three Arctic Skuas and a Great Skua flew east this afternoon. A few Swifts and hirundines passed through and a Ring Ouzel was the best of the birds on the land. 

During the week there was not a great deal happening around the rest of the peninsula. There were some decent numbers of Swallows and a few Swifts over the pits when the weather was poor and Black-necked Grebes continue to be seen on New Diggings and the Tundra Bean Goose was still being seen around the Dengemarsh area.

A couple of Porpoises were feeding offshore.
