18th April

Two Ring Ouzels and a Tree Pipit were both new species for the year. 41 Lapland Buntings were at Kirbest; a Blackcap, 7 Chiffchaffs, 2 Willow Warblers and a Goldcrest were seen; 93 Wheatears were present, and a 1st-winter Iceland Gull flew past Bridesness. Other migrants included a Whimbrel, 5 Collared Doves, 5 Sand Martins, a Chaffinch and 2 Redpolls, and the female Sparrowhawk was seen again.

Good numbers of Wheatears continue to pass through.
