18th Apr

After a calm start the wind quickly increased from the NW and then veered NNE in the afternoon and becoming very cold.
There was a small arrival of Willow Warblers and Chiffchaffs and single new Redstart and Pied Flycatchers (both in the Old Lighthouse Garden) were found and a Yellow Wagtail flew over.
The morning seawatch was very quiet but things improved in the afternoon as the wind changed with four Pintails, 153 Whimbrel, 111 Bar-tailed Godwits, five Mediterranean Gulls and 22 Common Terns of note. The first-winter Iceland Gull was still at the Patch.

At least eight Porpoises were feeding offshore.
