A fairly quiet day and another disappointing day for April saw hardly any new migrants arriving. A brief sea-watch from the north hide produced: four Great northern Divers, twelve Fulmars, five Manx Shearwaters, five Cormorants, twelve Shags, thirty two Razorbills and twenty two Guillemots. A Lapland Bunting was among a small flock of Meadow Pipits by Carreg whilst twelve Swallows, a couple Sand Martins and a couple House Martins moved through; nine Wheatears were around the coast. Thirty Willow Warblers, five Chiffchaffs and a Blackcap were present, and the usual pair of Collard Doves were by Ty Nesaf.
