6th April

The first Swallow of the year was the most notable of very few new migrants to arrive on a very wet day. The date is a bit earlier than usual for this species on North Ronaldsay, but still four days later than the earliest ever arrival. 31 Wheatears, 4 Dunnocks, a Robin, 16 Redwings, 9 Fieldfares, 3 Goldcrests, 2 Chaffinches and a Rook were also seen.
