1st May

A relatively quiet day though a few bits appeared after the afternoon rain. 3 carrion crow, 3 rook and a hybrid carrion x hooded crow were about in the morning, blackcaps were at Holland and Gretchen and a whimbrel at West Beach. A flock of 100 pink-footed geese came in and settled at Peckhole, a very unusual May record. 2 siskin, a lesser whitethroat and a willow warbler were by the Observatory and a sparrowhawk was at Holland. 3 grey heron were at Tor Ness and 7 arctic terns were seen.
