6th - 7th April

Four Herons and a Rook were the only birds of note on the 6th which saw a return to very cold northwesterly winds with snow showers. It was a much nicer day on the 7th, although still pretty chilly and a few more birds were seen as a result. A seawatch from the north end in the morning saw 235 Kittiwakes, 27 Gannets and 7 Puffins in amongst small numbers of Guillemots and Razorbills while land birds included a Lapland Bunting which joined an increased 150 Skylarks in Kirbest, with small flocks also heading off north through the day. Also seen were 33 Meadow Pipits and 4 Rooks while other notable counts from census included 85 Golden Plovers, 224 Turnstones and 19 Great-northern Divers.
