Hooded Crow lingers

4th April 2011 – overcast rain soon/heavy at times SW5/6
The conditions again meant that the sea provided the main interest with morning observations (0820-1000) producing 3 Little Gull along with 100 Common Scoter, 40 Gannet, 10 Red-throated Diver, 9 Sandwich Tern, 8 Razorbill, 6 Kittiwake, 2 Manx Shearwater and single Red-breasted Merganser and Guillemot.
Grounded Migrants
Although the Hooded Crow continues to linger single Wheatear and Fieldfare were the only other birds of note.
Wildfowl and Waders
The Brent Goose flock held 120 pale-bellied individuals and other sightings included 20 Barnacle Geese and 10 Pink-footed Geese.
A Double-striped Pug was the sole occupant of the moth traps.
