23rd-24th April

With the strong south-westerly wind persisting, spring migration continues at a snails pace with just occasional new arrivals. On 23rd these included another early Arctic Tern and a Short Eared Owl, and on 24th the first Willow Warbler (almost 2 weeks later than usual) was near Howar. A Goldfinch was also new, as was a Collared Dove while the 2 Tree Pipits seen that day were thought likely to be lingering birds.
