15th April

The first Brambling of 2011 was at Holland in the morning, but other new migrants were thin on the ground: the most notable were 2 Sand Martins, 2 Swallows, 4 Dunnocks, a Robin, 2 Chiffchaffs, 2 Willow Warblers, a Siskin and a Redpoll. Northbound Curlew passage was noted again, with 16 birds passing through; corvid movement consisted of 5 Rooks and 3 Carrion Crows; the Wheatear count came to 44, and that of Lapland Buntings to 27; and birds remaining from earlier in the week included a Sparrowhawk and a Woodpigeon.
