Monday 8th April

Took a phone call from the Captain and we arranged to meet at 5.30 for a evenings birding. After the pleasant Spring like weather of the weekend it was back to Baltic conditions. The easterly wind had returned and it really wasn’t pleasant.

From the car park there were a few hirundines at the far end, in total there were four Swallow and ten Sand Martin, god only knows what they were finding to eat! As we walked around the Kittiwake was still in the same place and showing really well. It was again very quiet with the wind and cold keeping passerines down. There were upwards of 20 Pied Wagtails and we saw a male Yellowhammer but on the whole it was a little disappointing. At home there was good movement of Fieldfare with over 50 birds seen.
