4th April

After a night of thunderstorms it was hoped there might be a few grounded migrants about and by the end of the day some reasonable totals had been seen including 15 Firecrests, 26 Goldcrests and 18 Chiffchaffs along with a Willow Warbler and three Blackcaps. A party of five 'Continental' Coal Tits also flew through along with four Siskins and 90 Linnets.

Offshore passage was pretty good during the morning but had more or less finished by mid-morning. There were notable counts of 1100 Brent Geese, three Eiders, 829 Common Scoters, 17 Red-breasted Mergansers, 125 Red-throated and two Black-throated Divers, the first two Whimbrels of the year, three Arctic Skuas, 56 Little Gulls, nine Mediterranean Gulls and 307 Sandwich Terns

Five Porpoises and a Grey Seal were also seen.
