10th Apr

Another day for the most part spoilt by thick fog. When the sea was visible there was a little movement to be seen with three Garganeys, four Red-breasted Mergansers and nine Whimbrel of note. A first-winter Caspian Gull was seen by the Fish Hut this afternoon.
The land remains fairly quiet although a Redstart was seen at the Long Pits and a Bullfinch and two Bramblings were found in the trapping area while more usual migrants included four Swallows, six Willow Warblers, seven Firecrests, nine Blackcaps and 27 Redwings.
