Friday 27th April 2018

A truly horrible day with steady rain and temperatures falling. At least 5 Wheatears of the Greenland race were still on the east bank during the day, with a pair of Stonechats also of note. Two Cuckoos were also heard and 2 Chiffchaffs, 6 Willow Warblers, 2 Blackcaps, 2 Lesser Whitethroats, 2 Common Whitethroats, a Grasshopper Warbler, 12 Sedge Warblers and 4 Reed Warblers were also logged.

In the moth traps an Early Grey and a Muslin moth were the highlights.
