11th April 2012

Apart from the 95 Brent, there were 3 Canada and 2 Greylag geese today on the shore. A male Blackcap was the only warbler but even that managed to evade capture. A small passage of 14 Sand Martins and 12 Swallows braved the strong westerlies, while 28 Sandwich Terns and 40 Gannets were blown within sight of the island. A Dunnock was ringed which was a little unusual in that all the resident birds are already ringed and this was therefore a stranger !
