The main feature of the day was an excellent movement of Brent Geese with just under 3500 birds passing east up until early afternoon. Other species were generally scarce but did include three Teal, three Curlew, 49 Red-throated Divers and four Mediterranean Gulls. The juvenile Glaucous Gull was also still feeding offshore.
On the land, the highlight was the arrival of our first Wheatear of the spring but other migrants were very sparse.
The Audiomoth was recording again last night and in ten hours produced two Moorhens, a Golden Plover, a Curlew, a Redshank, six Blackbirds and 415 Redwings.
Four Porpoises were feeding offshore.
