17th April

Four Pochard on Bride's Loch was a noteworthy addition of a previously regular duck that occasionally bred on the Island, the Green-winged Teal remained there also but more surprising was a Pale-bellied Brent Goose, originally at Kirbest where 5 Lapland Buntings and a Black-tailed Godwit were seen. The first Arctic Skua was seen at Torness, 18 Pink-footed Geese flew north and 87 Redshanks counted in the southeast alone was noteworthy. A Goldcrest was in Holland, singles of Chiffchaff and Willow Warbler were seen and a White Wagtail was at Stennabreck
