Black Redstarts are a wonderful part of the scenery this spring

 A glorious, sunny calm morning, somewhat degenerating into some nasty, thundery showers through the afternoon; the day's dubious highlight was a Ring-necked Parakeet which flew north early on - only the sixth site record.   Other birds of note through another quiet spring day comprised 2 Black Redstarts still, a Chaffinch, a Chiffchaff, 3 Common Terns, a Fulmar and 3 Gannets north at sea, 2 Jackdaws, 7 Lesser Whitethroats, a Rook, 3 Sand Martins and 71 Swallows south, 4 Sandwich Terns, 8 Wheatears, 3 Whimbrel, 6 Whitethroats and a Yellow Wagtail.
