2nd April

A return to winter conditions, complete with frequent flurries of snow, did little to increase migrant numbers. The first Great Skua of the year flew by at sea, 2 Grey Herons arrived and a Rook was seen, but most other birds were hanging on from earlier days. Presumably the same Jack Snipe was flushed from the usual spot in Kirbest Mire, 14 European White-fronted Geese were still around, and passerines still included 115 Meadow Pipits, 3 Wheatears, 2 Chiffchaffs and a Goldcrest.
