7th April

Another cold and breezy morning with very little moving on the sea and small numbers of migrants on the land although a Hooded Crow was seen with the Carrion Crows on the beach. Of the few other bits that were around another 'Continental' Coal Tit, four Firecrests, nine Willow Warblers and three Blackcaps were of note. Three Mediterranean Gulls were feeding at the Patch and another two birds flew east.

At least two Porpoises were feeding offshore but sadly another freshly dead individual was was washed up on the beach this morning. This is the second to do so in the last ten days. A Weasel was also seen at the Long Pits.
