27th April 2015

Weather: E 0-1, backing N then W 4-5, 0/8 cloud increasing 6/8 through the day, good vis

A promising start to the day weather-wise  didn't materialise into migrants with only a single White Wagtail and half a dozen Swallows (and some of them are breeding) the only migrant passerines in the island today.

However, as usual no matter what the conditions noteworthy records are never too far away and the highlight of the day was a single Dark-bellied Brent; not an untypical sighting for this time of year in recent years.  The last of the wintering flock of Pales, included a single Dark-bellied, were last seen on 16th of the month.
