Wednesday 20th April 2016

The cold and frosty start to the day, with a north-easterly to easterly wind, means that very little of note turned up (hence the pretty picture of one of our 7 pairs of Great Tits. 

On-site just 5 Wheatear, 4 Chiffchaff, 3 Blackcap, 2 Lesser Whitethroat, 1 Willow Warbler and a Rock Pipit on the point. 

Passing through were 6 Swallow south and 4 Sandwich Tern and a Hobby north. Other things of note were 3 Harbour Porpoise (interesting enough in the harbour) and this Dark Sword-grass, (below), possibly a migrant.  

Ringing only produced 5 birds, 2 Chiffchaff and 1 each of Blackcap, Great Tit and Linnet.
