Monday 2nd April

It was a little colder and a cloudier than of late. But I thought it might be a little better for birds, and so it proved. The Scaup was still there and is a lot more active than it was, probably a sign that it will be off soon. I have to say and I am not suggesting anything, that it doesn’t look particularly big for a male Scaup, it obviously is one, but it must have been the runt of the litter.

The highlight today though was a male Wheatear on the west shore my first of the year. Migrants though have been thin on the ground and apart from a couple of singing Chiffchaff and a couple of Sand Martin late on. Also a Goosander late on came into roost.
