22nd April 2013

Minimal migration this morning, only a single Swallow, 6 Wheatears, 2 Chiffchaffs and a Willow Warbler. The westerly breeze meant the best sightings were on the sea with 6 Manx Shearwaters, 110 Gannets, 8 Razorbills, 100 Sandwich Terns, 12 Common terns and an adult Kittiwake. Three Brent remain from the wintering flock and there were still 234 Curlew resting between the east hoyle and Little Eye and 8 Whimbrel around the island.
Ringed:- 2 Chiffchaffs, 1 Willow Warbler   [ 242-21 ]
