4th April

A long-eared owl was flushed from Holland early morning and thrushes were much more evident with 42 blackbirds, 32 fieldfare, 13 redwing and 2 song thrush. A goldcrest was at the Surgery, the siskin and woodpigeon remain and wheatears tallied up to a notable 38 considering the early date. Also much more abundant were meadow pipit with 224, the first great skua passed the north end and a littoralis rock pipit was by Bewan. Other birds of note were a woodcock at Twingness, 2 robin and still 2 glaucous gulls in Nouster Bay.
