7th April 2012

Lighter winds today but still with a northerly element and no overnight migrants on the ground. As the island was surrounded by the very high tide the first Whimbrel of the spring was found, also the second Swallow of the year. Fifteen Little Gulls were noted on the sea along with a Harbour Porpoise and the Brent were counted at 92 by Little Eye as the tide flooded. Two Linnets became the first birds to be ringed this month, an unusually quiet first week of April after an outstanding total ringed during March.
