19th Apr

A few migrants arrived on the land and included a male Pied Flycatcher at the Long Pits and a Ring Ouzel over the Observatory of note along with two Buzzards, a Merlin, 17 Willow Warblers, a Yellow Wagtail and two Siskins. It was very slow offshore with just 26 Mediterranean Gulls and a Great Skua of any interest.

Thirty Porpoises and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore again.
