21st April - more Willow Warblers

On another day of calm weather, Chris Dee reported increased numbers of Willow Warblers and continued passage of Chiffchaff and Blackcap. Another Sedge Warbler was present in Millcombe, as was a female Firecrest. Meanwhile with clearer conditions on the West Side, Mandy Dee counted 73 Puffins on the water in Jenny's Cove with five or so on land. The Merlin was still present and small number of Swallows were seen. On leaving the island a Great Northern Diver was seen from M S Oldenburg in the Landing Bay.
Before handing over to Rob Duncan who arrived for a two-week stay, Chris had ringed a further 98 birds, including 57 Willow Warblers, a Sedge Warbler and the Firecrest.
