4th Apr

Another calm but murky morning but this time there was a small arrival of migrants with 22 Chiffchaffs, 25 Willow Warblers and two Blackcaps in the bushes and a few finches overhead including 32 Goldfinches and three Siskins. A Swallow, a Fieldfare and four Wheatears were also seen. .
Offshore passage very slight but a Great White Egret flew east over the Seawatch Hide and a party of five Little Gulls passed through.
