10th April

A  mixed bag as far as the weather and the birding went, variety with no numbers. Highlights included the second Pied Flycatcher of the year, a pair of Ring Ouzels and another brief appearance by a Serin, whilst tardy fly-bys included a Redwing and a pair of Fieldfares. The sea fared much the same as the land with species including Red-breasted Merganser, Puffin, Arctic Skua, and Bonxie along side the regulars, but all in low numbers.
