Saturday 1st April 2017

Fairly predictable early April fare with a handful of new Chiffchaff & Robins on site plus 2 Black Redstart. Some Vis Mig in the form of southbound 10 Carrion Crow, 4 Jackdaw, Rook, Mipit & Goldfinch. Offshore highlight was 6 Oyk south from which one can assume not a lot.

Blossom Underwing is the first site record of this species and part of an overnight immigration along with other sites on the coast. The first Diamond-back Moth of the year also noted.

7 birds ringed: 3 Robin, 2 Chiffchaff, 1 Black Redstart, 1 Wren
