21st April 2012

The early morning approach to the island found a sub-adult Yellow-legged gull with other gulls on the east side. A cold westerly gave little hope of migration and so it proved although a Yellow Wagtail calling over was the first record this year. Seven Swallows passed through, also 10 Goldfinches, a Siskin and a White Wagtail but it was otherwise very quiet. On the ground a single Chiffchaff represented the warblers and 2 Wheatears stopped to feed. Eight Gannets and 2 Razorbills were logged.
Ringed:- 1 Chiffchaff, 2 Linnets
