11th April

Cold easterlies continue to blow but there was little to show for it today; migrants included another Sparrowhawk, one or possibly two ringtail Hen Harriers, two Bonxies, two Sandwich Terns roosting on Gretchen Loch to escape the biting wind, a Mistle Thrush, 70 Meadow Pipits - a new high count for the year, 13 Pied Wagtails and another two new Robins.

Theres still a wintery feel to the island despite the recent Wheatears and Sandwich Terns including good numbers of Long-tailed Ducks still lingering offshore
