19th April

A fair selection of common migrants were recorded throughout the day. 71 Wheatears and 27 Lapland Buntings were here, but most other species were only present in low numbers. 19 Swallows, 9 Sand Martins, 6 Rooks and a Carrion Crow passed through; 8 Chiffchaffs, a Willow Warbler, a Goldcrest and a Blackcap were found; a Ring Ouzel still remained, along with 8 Redwings; and migrant finches included 4 Redpolls, 3 Siskins, 2 Bramblings and a Chaffinch. A Common Tern was on the beach with 5 Sandwich Terns, and other non-passerines included a new Sparrowhawk, 3 Whimbrels, a Black-tailed Godwit and 2 Woodpigeons.
