Thu 7 Apr – Chilly winds, few migrants
A second day of cold north-westerlies streaming down across the island was not exactly conducive to arrivals of spring migrants from the south and both numbers and variety were well down on what would be hoped for at the end of the first week in April. Mist-netting was again not possible because of the strength of the wind, so the following totals provided by Rob are based on sightings only: 12 Swallows, 4 Long-tailed Tits, 1 Coal Tit, 8 Blackcaps, 5 Chiffchaffs, 2 Willow Warblers and 25 Meadow Pipits.
