23rd Apr

It was very quiet offshore and on the land although the Wryneck was seen again briefly this morning and a Ring Ouzel was seen in the power station complex. Swallow passage increased with 40 seen and a Swift and several Reed Warblers were new for the year.
Three Great Skuas were the best of a two-hour seawatch this morning.

The undoubted highlight of the day for three observers was a Large Tortoiseshell Aglais polychloros at the north end of the Long Pits.

The Early Purple Orchids Orchis mascula are also putting on a decent showing alongside the Observatory access road.
