Sunday 24th April 2016

With weather deteriorating further there was little new in terms of migrants today. On the sea 7 Gannets, 2 Eiders and 25 Common Scoters were recorded, and at the Observatory a Hobby flew over the pines early afternoon.

Highlights at Walsey were also limited by the weather, with small numbers of Chiffchaff and Blackcap singing during breaks in the rain and hail. 2 Whimbrels flew over in the morning and a Wryneck was still present, in gardens to the west of the NWT Visitor Centre.

A female Common Scoter was again seen on the Broadwater - Holme Bird Obs, April 2016
