5th April

A first-summer Iceland Gull on the Links was the day's highlight. Other new migrants were few in number, but included 2 Jackdaws. The Stock Dove was still present, along with 27 Wheatears, 2 Dunnocks, a Robin, 2 Goldcrests and 10 Lapland Buntings. The Golden Plover flock reached 341 birds, and a couple of Pink-footed Geese were amongst the Greylags.

Increasingly strong westerly winds brought good numbers of Eiders into the island's sheltered bays.
