Saturday 23rd April 2016

Weather;  Wind NW f 2-3;  sunny and cool.

A quiet day with Northerley winds bringing most migration to an abrupt halt. A Cuckoo, probably Thursday's bird, and 2 Wheatear remained in the coastal paddocks whilst 4 Blackcap were in Lingham Lane. The only new bird in today was a male Lesser Whitethroat heard singing briefly along Lingham Lane. The biting wind didn't help seawatching either however 4 Eiders were recorded as was yesterday's Velvet Scoter which seems to be appearing offshore opposite the Lighthouse car park around high tide then drifting west as the tide ebbs.
