Thick fog limited interest until midday when the mist lifted and gave way to a beautiful spring afternoon. Migrants overhead included a Grey Wagtail, 14 Siskins, 7 Redpolls and 8 Buzzards over the marshes.

Grounded migrants appeared to consist of Robins, Goldcrests and a few Chiffchaffs. A Green Sandpiper was seen flying along the Broadwater and a Greenshank was seen from the entrance track.

Only 5 moths were in the traps, including 2 Red Chestnuts.
