A brisk southerly which calmed into a light SE breeze mostly clear, clouding over by late afternoon.

A brief seawatch in the morning was relatively quiet with 2 Arctic Skua the highlight for me. The land was generally quiet too, Lesser Whitethroat are certainly more evident this year. I’ve not seen a Willow Warbler since the 10th perhaps they are starting to wane. Despite the afternoon feeling perfect for something “a little bit special”, an easterly passage of c30 Swallow along with a single Swift were the only encouraging signs of movement. A question I keep asking myself this spring, where are all the Red Kite? I’ve seen maybe 5 so far this year.
