3rd April

A largely underwhelming selection to report from a pleasantly bright, sunny day that had dawned with  one of the sharpest frosts of the year. The migrant selection on the ground included a few Black Redstarts, 2 Redwings and a Redstart amongst the light scatter of more routine arrivals; a trickle of hirundines passed through as the day wore on and singles of Great Northern Diver, Canada Goose and Red-breasted Merganser were the best on offer amongst what little passed through offshore.

Even a slow migration day has a few things that'll entertain: Purple Sandpiper, Sparrowhawk and Wheatears © Peter Moore Peter Moore's Wildlife Blog
