1st Apr

The most significant event of the day was waking up to a light covering of snow with snow flurries continuing through the morning. Several seawatching sessions eventually produced 121 Brent Geese, three Shelducks, three Teal, eight Red-breasted Mergansers, 62 Fulmars, 1237 Gannets, six Little Gulls and 82 Sandwich Terns. It was very quiet on the land.

A Porpoise and a Grey Seal were feeding offshore.
