9th Apr

Not a great deal to be seen on a cold and breezy day. A Great White Egret came in over the Fishing Boats, two Buzzards flew over the Long Pits and a Merlin was seen at the Point. Three Willow Warblers and 12 Chiffchaffs were seen in the bushes and a Brambling and 14 Siskin also flew over.

Five Porpoises were seen offshore and a Badger was seen in the Observatory garden at first light.
