11th Apr

A few more local migrant birds arrived but there was very little else in the way of migrants on the land with just four Swallows, two Yellow Wagtails and three Jays of note.,
Offshore passage will also slow with just seven Mediterranean Gulls, two Arctic Skuas  and two Great Skuas of note.

Six Porpoise were feeding offshore.

The highlight of the day (for one observer at least) was a Large Tortoiseshell seen in the trapping area.
