11th Apr

It quickly became apparent this morning that there was not going to be a repeat of yesterdays arrival of migrants but there were still a few bits and pieces in the bushes with two Ring Ouzels at the Long Pits of particular note. Three Whitethroats were new arrivals along with a few Chiffchaffs and Willow Warblers. A trickle of birds passing overhead included singles of Yellow Wagtail and Tree Pipit.
The sea was very quiet but a check of the Patch in the evening refound one of the first-winter Iceland Gulls and also a first-winter Caspian Gull and four Mediterranean Gulls.

Three Porpoises were seen.

A Red-eared Terrapin was seen a the Long Pits.

A Seraphim was an unusual capture in the moth trap and a Grizzled Skipper was seen in the trapping area.
