28th Apr

A foggy morning produced very little of interest. Migrants on the land were fairly scarce with the first Whinchat of the spring, a Garden Warbler and a Tree Pipit of note. The sea was very slow but over five hours of watching eventually produced two Eiders, a Manx Shearwater, 26 Whimbrel, ten Arctic Skuas and two Little Terns were noted and two Hobbies also came in off the sea.
