7th April 2021

Another day of strong north-north-west winds although they gradually dropped in strength during a largely overcast day, with temperatures again reaching a paltry four degrees C. Seawatch highlights included a Manx Shearwater and two Sandwich Terns moving north. Five Great Northern Divers remained off the South Cliffs, along with two Long-tailed Ducks and five Eider. In the local context, a flock of 31 Sanderling on South Landing beach was exceptional. Three Chiffchaffs sheltered in the nearby ravine, with two Blackcaps also on the headland.
