24th Apr

A nice but cool morning which gave way to fog, rain and wind in the afternoon failed to produce very much of interest.
The highlights of over six hours of seawatching were 23 Manx Shearwaters, seven Great Skuas, four Mediterranean Gulls, four Little Gulls and a Little Tern. There was little to be seen on the land with the best being a Garden Warbler and a Firecrest.

Four Porpoises were feeding offshore and a Brown Hare was seen on the road at the entrance to the Estate..
