2nd April

Another day with no more than single figure totals of grounded migrants at the Bill, amongst which 2 White Wagtails and a lone Redwing provided the only glimmer on interest; elsewhere, lingering singles of Black Redstart at Reap Lane and Redwing at Blacknor attracted admirers in the absence of anything else. Despite the southerly breeze freshening quickly ahead of the arrival of yet more during the afternoon sea passage was rather pedestrian, with 17 Red-throated Divers, 4 Dunlin, 4 Sandwich Terns and an Arctic Skua the best from the Bill.
