10th Apr

The light breeze had veered into the NW overnight and induced a decent arrival of migrants on the land. As is typical at this stage of the spring the arrival was dominated by Willow Warblers with at least 180 birds seen along with 20 each of Chiffchaffs and Blackcaps and our first Whitethroat and two Redstarts of the year.
The sea was very quiet with just six Common Terns and three Mediterranean Gulls feeding offshore of note.
