Another nice start to the day but unfortunately it wasn't long before the wind picked up to become pretty cold and strong, forcing us to close a few nets early; despite this we managed 29 new birds through the morning with Dunnocks and Robins unsurprisingly still featuring heavily but the total did include 2 Willow Warblers and 3 Blackcaps.

Louis had an excellent start to his Easter holidays out on the tip as a female-type Blue-winged Teal flew east at 07:30 with a group of Shovelers; his other totals included 1,480 Eiders, 25 Shoveler, an Osprey north, 32 Brent Geese, a Red Kite south, a Marsh Harrier also south, 2 Cranes north and an Arctic Skua east.

I couldn't really add much else to the day really although there were 4 Swallows at the tip late afternoon and still one nice male Blue-headed Wagtail at Birkemosse with 25+ White Wagtails.
