4th May 2008

A 'channel' Blue-headed type wagtail was identified among the 7 Yellow Wagtails early morning, and the day then became a Swift (77), Swallow (167), and Lesser Redpoll (129) day.
Tree Pipits passed in good numbers (10), while Greenland wheatears and Willow Warblers were also in double figures. Five Sedge Warblers, 3 Whitethroats and a Whinchat were grounded.

Fine reward for sea watching were a dark phase Arctic Skua and a Black Tern.
