26.4.20 to 3.5.19 Lockdown week 6

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.
