2nd April

After a miserable morning, the weather improved and a small number of new migrants had appeared: 36 Fieldfares and 21 Redwings were seen; 10 Wheatears, 2 Robins and a Common Redpoll were in the northern part of the island; and a little corvid passage comprised 5 Hooded Crows heading south and 5 Rooks. The first Knot for some weeks was seen, and a Great Skua was off the coast. Birds remaining from previous days included the Yellowhammer, a Grey Wagtail, a Chiffchaff, 4 Chaffinches, 2 Siskins, the Greenfinch and 2 Lapland Buntings.
