Tuesday 10th April 2018

Black Redstarts were the main event of the day, with up to three birds (all females) around the observatory building and a fourth in the horse paddocks on the NWT reserve. The Firecrest was still in the west end of the pines, at least twenty Med Gulls were counted on the grazing marsh and a Woodcock was flushed from the dunes.
