24th April 2018

Weather:  WSW 1-2, 8/8 cloud, good vis

The weather was obviously not conducive for passerine migration but a brief visit this morning proved that waders were very much on the move with 16 Whimbrel counted along with 6 Curlew and 18 Dunlin but the highlight was two Common Sandpipers; one which flew down the west side between the islands and off down the reef and a second bird which spent the morning around the North End.

The breeding Swallows appear to have returned around the Telegraph Station and Fog Cottage.
