30th March to 1st April

April fooled us today with a return to snow and hail showers and not much in the way of new arrivals other than a Woodpigeon, 23 Snow Buntings and 4 Goldcrests. At least two of the three Greenland White-fronted Geese remain.

2 Glaucous Gulls were seen on both the 30th and 31st March, with the Tundra Bean Goose still present around the school. The second Sandwich Tern of the year flew through Nouster Bay on the 30th of March, also present on that day were 3 Chiffchafffs, a Black-tailed Godwit, 130 Golden Plover, 2 Merlins and a Peregrine Falcon.

The wind is allegedly swinging easterly on Thursday night and we have all available fingers crossed that this time it brings some birds in.
