30th April

The final day of the month saw the sun come out and the wind drop in the morning, only to increase from the south again in the afternoon with some heavy showers. A 1st summer Little Gull at Westness was easily the best of the new arrivals, while the 9 Black-tailed Godwits seen were presumably some of yesterdays birds. There were 9 Lapland Buntings in the crop fields at Kirbest, a Peregrine flew up the west coast and a new Sparrowhawk was trapped and ringed at Holland House in the evening.
