First Manx Shearwater and a migrant Woodcock

4th April 2008 - overcast/showers W3/4
Observations on the falling tide (1300-1400) produced the first Manx Shearwater of the year. Also logged were 18 Sandwich Tern, 12 Razorbill and 3 Gannet.
Grounded Migrants
Another smattering of migrants were led by a Woodcock with 8 Goldcrest, 6 Wheatear and 3 Chiffchaff also seen.
The continued presence of a pair of Long-tailed Tit raises speculation of a breeding attempt - an unusual event on the island. At least 2 Little Egret remain.
