Migration Time.

3rd May

There was a small arrival of migrants this morning with two Wood Warblers, two Redstarts and a Pied Flycatcher being the highlights. Other bits and pieces included a Hobby and a Corn Bunting.
Seawatching was not very inspiring during the morning although 22 Little Gulls and two Great Skuas did pass through but it picked up a bit in the afternoon when another six Great Skuas, five Pomarine Skuas and four Arctic Skuas were seen.

A few flowers are starting to appear now and a couple of nice sights at the moment are a patch of Rock Soapwort growing at the Lifeboat Station and a good showing of Early Purple Orchids alongside the track to the Observatory.
