Monday, 30 April 2012

It was another decent day on the bird-front, and a good end to April. The more noteworthy sightings of the day included three Short-eared Owls, two Golden Plovers, a Snipe, two Cuckoos, five Swifts, five Tree Pipits, two Redstarts, a Whinchat and a male Pied Flycatcher trapped at Cristin. 225 Wheatears were scattered around inland, a Sand Martin, 63 Swallows and 20 House Martins passed overhead, and two Grasshopper Warblers, seven Sedge Warblers, three Whitethroats, 63 Blackcaps, seven Chiffchaffs, 183 Willow Warblers and a Goldcrest were virtually everywhere!
