21st April 2015

Weather: NW force 3, haze
With the breeze being from a northerly direction overnight, little in the way of migrants was expected, and a short visit in the morning proved the case. Most surprising was a Common Snipe at the south end of the island, very unusual at this time of year. A small amount of Swallows went through, also a single Greenland Wheatear. Later in the afternoon a female Blackcap was found. The best of the other records today was a male Red-breasted Merganser and 3 Whimbrel. Six Peacock butterflies were on the wing, and a Map spider was found.
