11th April 2014

Weather:- NNW force 1/2
No warblers again but 4 male Wheatears was some compensation for the observers, also a Merlin, 3 Sand Martins and 8 Swallows passing through made it not a bad day. The best sighting was of an immature male Eider that passed between the islands and headed east. A Woodpigeon flew south and 10 Goldfinches were noted today. Eighty five Gannets, 3 Red-throated Divers and a pair of red-breasted Mergansers were the highlight of sea watching. Two Little Egrets were recorded today, and 38 Brent still remain.
Ringed :- 2 Wheatears                         [ 153-19 ]
