14th April 2015

Weather: WSW 3-4, 5/8, good vis

20 Pale-bellied Brents were joined by a single Dark-bellied this morning but the surprise visitor again (particularly given the unfavourable wind direction) was a male Ring Ouzel seen several times around the South End during the morning.

Four Willow Warblers were noted mid morning along with single Chiffchaff and Goldcrest and a flock of seven White Wagtails alighted on the east side of the islands.

A couple of Swallows and a Sand Martins passed through and late evening brought the first Whimbrel of the year heard calling and seen near the North End.

Whimbrel - North End of Hilbre (SRW)
