2nd April

A steady passage of Red-throated Divers - 48 through off the Bill - hadn't looked to be on the cards in the continuing chilly northerly breeze and provided the best of today's passage interest. The clear skies overnight hadn't been at all helpful on the land migrant front and although there was a little more about than yesterday it was only a scatter of at least 8 Black Redstarts and 2 Merlins that provided interest amongst the handful of Wheatears, Blackcaps and phylloscs. Another passing Great Crested Grebe was the only non-diver of note off the Bill.
