Friday 4th May

A warm but overcast day that saw a small arrival of migrants overnight with a Grasshopper Warbler reeling in Dead Dolphin Wood the highlight, also two singing Sedge Warbler and four Wheatear on site. Offshore three Arctic Tern, two Eider, three Red-throated and a Great Northern Diver.
