Apologies for late posting.On Friday evening  Pat M saw a Red Kite; on Saturday 22nd April Pat M saw 3 Grasshopper Warblers, a male Redstart,a Sedge Warbler, 40+ Willow Warblers and 75+Wheatears and a possible Pomarine Skua.

Sunday 23rd (when I visited) seawatching with Pat M (7.20 till 9am) produced  2 Arctic Skuas , 3 Sandwich Terns east and 13 Manx Shearwaters west. A smattering of common migrants included my first 5 Whitethroats, 11+ Wheatears, 2 Willow Warblers, 20+ Swallows, 1 Sand Martin. Always interesting what a difference a day makes at this time of the year !
