At last, after a miserable night and early morning SE winds there was a significant easterly movement of birds at sea and good numbers of early migrants on the land. Highlights on the land where our first two Wheatears of the spring along with six Black Redstarts, five Fieldfare, 30 Redwings, 25 Chiffchaffs and 15 Firecrests. Offshore movement consisted mainly of wildfowl with 1700 Brent Geese, 12 Pintail, eight Garganey, 16 Shoveler, and a Scaup along with two Great Skuas, four Mediterranean Gulls and eight Sandwich Terns. A Stone-curlew was seen in the Lade Pit area.
