Migration Time.

30th Apr

A day much like the previous few with very little on the land and an offshore movement of birds which peaked in the evening.
Of note on the land were a Buzzard over the Observatory, five Willow Warblers were seen in the bushes and a Tree Pipit flew over.
Final day totals from nine hours of seawatching included 25 Shovelers, a Black-throated Divers, 266 Bar-tailed Godwits, 81 Whimbrel, ten Knot, 113 Little Terns, 1379 Common Terns, a Black Tern and seven Arctic Skuas.  

At least ten Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore and two Bank Voles were seen on the land.

One Grizzled Skipper was found in the trapping area.
