4th April

Precious little by way of new arrivals to report today, with the season's first Whitethroat the best of the day's discoveries at the Bill where Swallows did get going in some numbers through the middle of day but grounded migrants were again relatively few and far between; elsewhere, 2 Ring Ouzels, a Yellow Wagtail and a Redstart continued to entertain at Barleycrates Lane. Red-throated Divers again provided the bulk of the interest on the sea, with 19 more through off the Bill where 41 Common Scoter, 7 Sandwich Terns and a Great Skua also passed by.
