A welcome warm front brought a big improvement in the weather. On the bird front though, scarcely any improvement at all was noticed. Four Willow Warblers and a Redpoll were just about the only migrant passerines, while two Sandwich Terns, 18 Black-headed Gulls, eight Dunlins, a Common Sandpiper and the Ringed plover were the best of the other birds.

Bordered Beauty.
