Well, there’s little to say about the last week. April could not be redeemed despite some interesting looking weather towards the months end. May opened in a similar vain. The first Spotted Flycatcher showed up at Belle Tout on 2nd May. Very little change to a static feel on land. Highlights from a short seawatch on the 29th included, 1 Manx Shearwater, 10 Arctic Skua, 5 Great Skua.
A great looking Dotterel field at Cornish Farm (no Dotterel).
Swallow prospecting nesting opportunities at Cornish Farm.
Pied Wagtail clinging on for dear life in a fierce SW gale on the 1st.
Eider passing Birling on the 29th.
Great Skua east on the 29th.
A pair of Fox cubs at Birling evening of the 3rd.
